APA referencing

This guide will help you reference a source in the APA (American Psychological Association) 7th edition style.


Getting started

APA is an author-date style. References are cited both in-text and in a reference list at the end of the document.

Check the full APA Publication Manual for information not found in this Library Guide.

The APA Blog: Style and Grammar pages contain details on all aspects of APA 7th, such as formatting a paper, grammar, and creating figures and tables. It is a useful companion to the full APA Publication Manual.
