  1. 1. APA American Psychological Association (APA)
  2. 2. CITATIONS The American Psychological Association (APA) developed APA style for use in its own publications. APA is now the standard editorial style in many social science and health- related fields, including psychology, sociology, economics, business, criminology, social work, and nursing.
  3. 3. CITATIONS Citations are notes acknowledging the source of ideas, information, and quoted passages used in a research paper. A complete citation typically includes the author, title, publisher, date, and other information to help readers locate the original source.
  4. 4. Why Cite? There are at least three good reasons for citing references:1. It’s the right thing to do. Using another writer’s words or ideas without citing the source is plagiarism.2. Citations allow readers to look up your sources. This helps put your ideas and conclusions into context.3. For school papers, citations are usually required.
  5. 5. LIST OF REFERENCES The list of References, sometimes labeled Works Cited or Bibliography in other citation styles, is an alphabetized list of citations at the end of a research paper. The list is double- spaced, and each item is formatted with a hanging indent; that is, the second and subsequent lines are indented more than the first line.
  6. 6. For example:Bailey, G., & Peoples, J. (1999). Introduction to cultural anthropology. Belmont, CA: Thomson Wadsworth.
  7. 7. In-Text CitationsReferences that appear within the body of a paper are called in-text citations. The first time a source is mentioned, it should be cited as part of the text. The citation, including the year of publication, is enclosed in parentheses.For example:… By the end of the 1980s, Gorbachev was losing patience with the Lithuanian independence movement. (Serrill, 1990). …
  8. 8. The citation can also be written into a sentence, with the year of publication enclosed in parentheses:… According to Serrill (1990), by the end of the 1980s, Gorbachev was losing patience with the Lithuanian independence movement. …
  9. 9. Quick Tips on APA Style Only the first word of a title or subtitle, and proper nouns, are capitalized in book, magazine, journal, and article titles. In the list of References, all author names are written in last-first order, e.g., Doe, J. If there is more than one author, names are separated by commas; an ampersand (&) precedes the final
  10. 10. Quick Tips on APA Style First and middle names of authors are represented by initials only, indicated in this guide as “F. M.” for First Middle. The year of publication is always included, in both the list of references and in-text citations. Citations of online sources include the date on which the source was retrieved from the Web.
  11. 11. Quick Tips on APA Style f referring to a particular section of a work, page numbers for that section are included in the list of References, but not in the in-text citation. With the exception of journal articles and printable documents, electronic sources do not usually display page numbers; if page numbers cannot be found, there is no need to include them.
