Citing in APA Style

APA (American Psychological Association)

When scientists cite research, they use the APA format which makes crediting multiple authors easy and highlights the currency of the research.

What does it look like?

Format

Author, A. A., & Author, B. B. (Date of publication). Title of article. Title of Journal, volume number, page range. Retrieved from http://www.someaddress.com/full/url/ 

Example

Smyth, A. M., Parker, A. L., & Pease, D. L. (2002). A study of enjoyment of peas. Journal of Abnormal Eating, 8(3), 120-125. Retrieved from
