Help with common issues and questions with APA 6th ed. Citation Style.

Reference Formats

Please use the pull-down menu on the "Reference Formats" tab to see examples and explanations for a variety of resources.

There is also a page titled "Variations" including some frequently asked questions; however, please consult the APA Manual 6th edition for more complex resources or ones that do not follow the standard pattern. Copies of this manual are available on reserve at the Library or else you can purchase copies at a bookstore near you.

Disclaimer: The Librarians make no claims to be experts in APA style. However, we are frequently asked questions about how to do it. If you disagree with our interpretations of the style manuals, or if we are flat-out wrong, please email the Library.
