This guide provides instruction and examples for creating citations for resources in APA Style. Examples are based on the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA) 7th edition.
Remember, the final authority for the reference format, including font and spacing of the references, is your professor. Check your assignment instructions for alternate requirements.
While this guide provides examples for many of the most common sources you may need to cite and attempts to represent variations within those sources, it is not comprehensive. If you need more help, you should refer to the APA style website, in particular pages linked here regarding the elements of reference list entries and what to do about missing reference information.
During the transition to APA Style (7th edition) some professors may continue to ask for or allow APA Style (6th edition).
