APA Citation Style (7th ed.)

APA Citation Style: References

The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (7th ed.) is the official source for citing in APA style.

The reference list at the end of the paper, labeled References, provides the information necessary for readers to identify and retrieve each work cited in the text. To create a reference list entry, first determine the reference group (e.g. textual works, data sets,) and category and then choose the appropriate reference type within the category (e.g. journal article) and follow that example.

The following links lead to examples of references (with corresponding in-text citations) from the official APA Style website. For reference examples not listed on these pages, refer to the Publication Manual or to the APA Style website.
