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.
The sites listed below have examples of different types of citations for different types of sources (journal articles, books, chapters in books, and more). Note that the below guides are all using the 6th Edition of the APA Style. We are actively working on providing new guidance related to the 7th Edition and this page/box will change as that information becomes available.
