Quick Guide to Citing Sources in APA Style

While the Publication Manual may look overwhelming to you when you first start using it, remember that nearly everything you need to know can be found in three sections of the manual.

Formatting in-text citations can be found in chapter 6.

The gist of what you need to know for references lists can be found in the examples in chapter 7.

Formatting In-text Citations

These basic rules relate to in-text citations.

1.Use the author/date system. Be careful with your punctuation. Gould’s (1999) analysis was later challenged by others (Duncan, 2003; Evans & Barker, 2004).

2.Do not plagiarize. Just changing a couple of words or rearranging a sentence isn’t paraphrasing. For direct quotes, you must identify the page number or paragraph number of the original source. For paraphrases, you are strongly encouraged to do so. See below for how to cite an online source such as the DSM.
