Introduction to APA

APA is a citation style created by the American Psychological Association. When using APA, there are two types of citations you will need include in your research paper: 

  1. Reference List Citations: A list at the end of your research paper that includes all sources used in your research paper
  2. In-Text Citations: Citations included throughout your paper, used when paraphrasing or quoting 

This research guide provides information on using APA 7th edition requirements to create reference lists and in-text citations. The 7th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association was published in October 2019. Some departments may still be using the 6th edition. Please consult your instructor if you are unsure which edition to use.
