Apa citation workshop

APA Citation Workshop

Brief Overview of Module Papers

Quick review
Quick Review…

  • APA is like MLA in that there’s both internal references and a final references list at the end of the document.

  • APA is also called the “name-date” format of citation. Inclusion of the date in internal citations is one of the main ways that APA differs from MLA.

Two part system

  • Internal References –a.k.a parenthetical

  • References

Internal reference system
Internal Reference System

  • Use an internal reference both when quoting directly or paraphrasing.

  • Understand how to include multiple authors in an internal citation.

  • Understand how to format a references page and cite the following on it:

    • Book

    • Newspaper Article

    • Website

How to internally reference
How to internally reference…

  • Here are the correct citations:

    • “Eight murders are deterred by every legal execution”(Maier, 1999, p. 32).

      Below are correct examples, however DO NOT use these in your module

    • According to Maier (1999), it costs $25,000 to jail a prisoner for one year.

    • In 1999, Maier found that the number of rapes reported by women on surveys varies greatly depending on who administers the survey.

      Remember that if you are using direct quotes you must include the page number of the text as well.

Reference page s
Reference Page(s)

  • Appears at the end

  • Every internal cite must have a reference

  • Look at the APA guide under Modules on the PAF 101 website and follow the exact format of the References page.
