American Psychological Association (APA) Style

APA style, developed by the American Psychological Association (APA), is used across many social science disciplines.

You don't need to memorize every rule of APA Style. Instead, find an example of a similar type of source cited in APA style (for example, a journal article, a book chapter, or a website), and use it as a pattern you will follow to create your own citation.
