Putting Together Your Citations & Formatting Your Paper 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.

Use the Publication manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed.) to correctly cite your sources and format your research papers.

Use the APA Style website for help with formatting your citations and your paper:

Use the Purdue OWL APA Guide templates to put together your APA citations:
