APA stands for the American Psychological Association, and it provides rules for how to format your paper, cite sources in text, and cite sources in your references list. This guide will introduce you to the most basic rules that you will need to know. For a full list of the rules, consult the Publication Manual of the APA (6th ed.). Copies are available at Smith Library, the Wanek Center Learning Commons, and the School of Education Resource Center.
Librarians are always happy to answer your APA citation questions!
This guide was adopted from the APA Formatting Style Guide created by Leecy Barnett at Lynn University.
