View a tutorial -- Why you need to cite sources
How APA citing works:
In APA style papers, give credit to your sources by providing a brief author-date citation in the text of your paper that leads the reader to an alphabetical list of citations at the end of the paper. For example, cite an article or book by author Anderson published in 2010 as (Anderson, 2010) at the end of a sentence or paragraph. Or, you may also cite author and date in the narrative by saying, "In 2010, Anderson found in her study that ..." or "Anderson (2010) found in her study that ... "
The list of sources referred to in the paper is at the end of the paper, arranged in alphabetical order. The references allow the reader to look up the cited information to check what the writer is saying. Every citation in the paper should be referenced in the list, and every reference in the list should be cited in the paper.
A bibliography is often confused with a reference list. A bibliography is a list of all sources consulted, not just those cited, such as background on the subject, or further reading, and may include descriptive notes about each source, which is called an annotated bibliography.
Formatting the References list:
Articles from scholarly journals follow this pattern:
