Citing Sources

See below for basic guidelines and examples of APA citation style.
APA Style Quiz

Why Cite?

Why you need to cite sources:

  • Citing sources is the only way to use other people’s work without plagiarizing (i.e. if you are using any resource [journal article, book, website, report, interview, etc.], you NEED to give credit to the original source).
  • The readers of your work need citations to learn more about your ideas and where they came from.
  • Citing sources shows the amount of research you’ve done.
  • Citing sources strengthens your work by lending outside support to your ideas.

In-Text Citations

In-text citations give credit to sources in the body of your paper. Use in-text citations when paraphrasing, directly quoting, or using ideas from sources.

  • APA citation style uses the author-date method for in-text citations: Author(s)’ last name and the year of publication for the source should appear in the text.
  • Names may appear either in the sentence itself or in parentheses following the quotation or paraphrase, but the date should always appear in the parentheses, not in the text of your sentence.
  • Include page numbers if you are directly quoting the material. 

See APA How to Format Citations and Helpful Tips

Reference List

Citations in the Reference List must correspond to in-text citations; The word or phrase you use in your in-text citations must be the first thing that appears on the left-hand margin of the corresponding entry in the Reference List.

See APA Sample Title Page and Reference List

Formatting

    • Separate page labeled “References,” double-spaced, same margins as rest of paper.
    • Indent the second and subsequent lines of citations by 0.5 inches to create a hanging indent.

Author Names

    • Alphabetized by the last name of the first author of each work.
    • Authors' names are inverted (last name, first initial).
    • List all authors of a particular work for up to and including seven authors. If the work has more than seven authors, list the first six authors and then use ellipses (...) after the sixth author's name. After the ellipses, list the last author's name of the work.

Capitalization and Punctuation

    • Capitalize only the first word of a title and subtitle and proper nouns (books, chapters, articles, web pages).
    • Italicize titles of longer works such as books and journals.
    • Do not italicize, underline, or put quotes around the titles of shorter works such as journal articles or essays in edited collections.
