Citation Guides: APA Style (7th ed.)

This guide will show the basics for citing sources.

APA

Publication manual of the APAAPA style, developed by the American Psychological Association, is used for hard sciences and social sciences, including education. APA uses parenthetical citations within the text and a corresponding bibliography or references list at the end of the paper.

 

What is a DOI?
A DOI, Digital Object Identifier, is a unique code used to permanently identify an article or document and link to it on the web. (It's kind of like your CCAC ID number which is only associated with you!)

What if there isn't a DOI?
No DOI? Just use the URL associated with the article!
