Memorial University Libraries How to Write Citations and Bibliographies in APA Style (2010)
Citations | Reference List (Bibliography) | Useful Guides

APA Style uses brief citations within the text of a paper immediately after a quote, a reference to a source, or a paraphrase. The brief citation gives the author, year, and page number of the source you are referring to in parentheses, allowing readers to locate the full citation in your Reference list at the end of your paper. Examples: Early onset results in a more persistent and severe course (Kessler, 2003, p. 69) as has been shown (Joreskog & Sorbom, 2007, pp. 99-100) No author? Use the first few words of the title instead. Within parentheses, use quotation marks around the title of an article, a chapter, or a web page; Italicize the name of a journal, newspaper, magazine, or book. Examples: ("Study Finds", 2007, p. 11) (College Bound Seniors, 2008, pp. 42-3) No page numbers? Many online sources do not have page numbers. Use a paragraph number, or cite the heading and the number of paragraphs following it. Examples: (Basu & Jones, 2007, para. 4) (Verbunt, Pernot, & Smeets, 2008, Discussion Section, para. 1) For more information on citing sources within your paper, see pp. 174-79 of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th edition.
