Citation Management

Please be aware that MS Word's References Tool and citing programs like Zotero, RefWorks, EndNote, etc. are not perfect.

If you use these or similar applications to create a reference list for your in-text references, ALWAYS check the output against the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association.

For your reference page you will need

Author :: year :: article title :: journal title :: website :: webpage :: page number :: paragraph number


Example 1

Author. (date). Title of the article. Title of the Journal. Retrieved from

(Author, date, para. 3)

Example 2

Title of the article. (date). Title of the Journal. Retrieved from

("Title of the article", date, para. 4)

Please refer to the APA Guide for more information
