APA format is commonly used in the social sciences. It involves the use of parenthetical in-text citations, which means that the citation information is within parentheses.
You can get help with APA from the following:
- The Publication Manual of the APA (6th Edition) Reference Desk Woodruff Library BF76.7 .P83 2010
*on the low reference shelves near the Library Service Desk.
- Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) -- a useful and comprehensive guide to citing different types of sources in APA format.
- Sample APA Style Paper
- The Basics of APA Style (tutorial)
- You can copy and paste a reference cited in APA style directly from many of the library databases and from Google Scholar.
- You can also use a citation manager software, like EasyBib, Zotero, or EndNote.
