How to Cite Using APA Style
What is it? Developed by the American Psychological Assocation, APA style is widely used, not only in the social science and management but also in the humanities and natural sciences.
How do I do it? There are two parts to APA citation: in-text reference and the list of reference at the end. See The Purdue Online Writing Lab (http://owl.english.purdue.edu/) for detailed guidelines.
Don't forget - you must cite your source both 1. In-Text and in a 2. Reference List
The in-text componant of APA citation includes two main elements: the author's last name and the year of the publication (e.g., Ross, 1997). And the page number whenever quoting directly or paraphrasing a specific section of the text (e.g., Ross, 1997). For more than one author, list the names in the order they appear in the source. Refer to http://libguides.uncfsu.edu/APAintext.
The list of references on your paper's last page is titled "References" and should be arranged in alphabetical order. Refer to the Reference List page for more information on how to cite works accurately at http://libguides.uncfsu.edu/referencelist.
