APA Style

A quick overview of how to use the APA Style and examples of in-text citations and references for a variety of different sources.

Formatting In-Text Citations & References

We use in-text citations and reference lists to guide the reader/viewer/audience member to the sources used to write, present, or create the paper, speech, or other creative piece. It is common for individuals who want to learn more about a topic to find and use the sources in a reference list. The source format and type impacts what is and isn't included in the in-text citation and reference. Watch the video on this page or look at our examples.
