APA 6th Edition

These examples are based on APA 6th edition. Non-article business resources are not specifically addressed by APA, so they are an interpretation based on "Entry in an online reference work"  and "Technical and Research Reports". This format is page 205 of the book Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. A copy is located in Ready Reference  and three circulating copies are on the 4th floor under call number BF76.7 .P83 2010.

How to format: Reference List & In-text Citations

Each source --- article, quotation, statistic, graph and chart, quotation--- is cited briefly in the body of the report using the author's name and publication date.

The citations are compiled in an alphabetized, formatted Reference List at the end of your report. This list provides the reader-professor details about each source for verification and to conduct further research about the topic.
