Citing in APA and MLA Style

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

Write and Cite in American Psychological Association (APA) Format

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

Use the Purdue OWL APA Formatting and Style Guide templates to put together your APA in-text and references list citations:
