APA stands for the American Psychological Association. This is the citation style used most often by people writing for the social sciences, such as psychology, sociology, education, and other fields. You can either consult the book at the Research Help Desk or the copy in the General Collection on Floor 3 (if it hasn't been checked out). See the links below for quick examples of how to format APA citations.
The sites listed below have examples of different types of citations for different types of sources (journal articles, books, chapters in books, and more).
