How do I format in-text citations and references in APA Style?
We also highly recommend the following online style guide web sites:
- The Purdue Online Writing Lab's (OWL) APA Formatting and Style Guide provides numerous examples for the general format of APA research papers, in-text citations, endnotes/footnotes, and reference pages.
- The APA Style Blog answers common questions and provides further explanations of APA style. Check out the blog post,"Writing In-Text Citations in APA Style", which covers the basics of in-text citation.
A copy of APA Style: Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th ed. is available at the Reference Desk.
