What Can You Expect to Find on Each Page?

APA Style Basics: This page gives you an overview of the who, what, where, when and why of what APA style is about.

In-Text References

Examples: This page has examples of references for different types of sources, and each one is written in APA style. You will also find printer-friendly examples of a formatted References page and a printer-friendly handout with citations according to type of source.

Helpful Websites: This page has quick links to online writing labs, the APA Style site, and other websites that offer instruction and guidance in the use of APA style.

Finding the DOI: Current APA practice requires the use of the "Digital Object Identifier" (DOI) for journal articles. Journal articles within the last 5-10 years should have a DOI, but this identifier is sometimes difficult to find when using articles retrieved from the library's subscription databases. Other citations may require use of a website URL. Use this simple flowchart to quickly grasp how and when to cite sources with DOIs or URLs correctly in your list of References. This page also has a quick link to the free CrossRef service for finding DOIs.
