APA Style


APA Style – Overview


American Psychological Association (APA) Style is most commonly used within the social and behavioral sciences. 

When using APA Style for your writing, briefly identify sources cited in the text of your paper (the in-text citation), and then provide complete reference source information in a list of References at the end of the paper.

The Library's guide is based on the seventh edition of the APA Style.
