Writing and Citing in APA Style

When you use someone else's words or ideas in your papers, you should create In-text citations (within the paper) and References list citations (at the end of the paper). Each In-text citation should lead to a References list citation, and each References list citation should come from an In-text citation.

The APA citations you get from databases or online citation generators are often wrong, so check your citations against APA templates while you're adding them to your References list.

Use the Publication manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed.) to cite your sources.

Use the Purdue OWL APA Guide (6th ed.) to put together your APA citations:

Use this sample APA paper to help you format your paper and this sample APA References list to help you put together your References list citations.
