APA Citation Guide: APA Citations

APA Citations

The APA Citation Style is often used for classes in the sciences and health fields. The MLA Citation Style is the other common format, usually used in the humanities. See the MLA citations guide for more information.

Use the blue tabs above to see APA citation formats for different kinds of sources, as well as for creating citations in the text of your paper. These formats are from the APA Publication Manual 5th edition.

DOI numbers are now required for APA citation if they are available.  For more information on how to find a DOI number, follow link below for an APA tutorial:
