APA Citation Style Guide: Reference Examples

The APA Citation Style Guide provides assistance for citing sources, based on the guidelines set by the American Psychological Association (APA) in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 7th Edition..

Creating a References Page

In APA style your bibliography should be called References.

The reference list should be double-spaced with a hanging indent used for each citation.

Within your References list, your references should be in alphabetical order based on the author's last name. If there is no author listed, use the title of the source.
