Kinesiology: APA Style Help

APA Citation Style

The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (7th ed.) is the official source for citing in APA style. APA (American Psychological Association) style is most commonly used to cite sources within the social sciences, such as Psychology, Linguistics, Sociology, Economics, and Criminology, as well as Business, Education, Kinesiology, and Nursing.

The University Library owns several print copies of the Publication Manual. Those listed as "Reference" in the library catalogue are for in-library use only. While the APA does not provide an institutional e-access model for their manual, individuals are able to purchase an electronic version via RedShelf and Vital Source.

Many of the links in this guide lead to the APA Style website. This is an official website of the American Psychological Association. Along with the print Publication Manual, it is the authoritative source for information about APA style and grammar guidelines.
