Citing your Sources
Goals of Properly Citing in APA Format:
Give credit to each author and their ideas and words in your paper
Consistency with APA format in all your In-Text and Reference List citations
The reader is able to distinguish when you're using someone else's research, ideas or words in your paper because you've included an appropriate citation (Note: Your analysis of their research, idea or words is your contribution)
The reader is able to match each In-Text citation (parenthetical) in your paper to an entry in your Reference List (bibliography) and vice versa.
In addition to providing guidance on grammar, the mechanics of writing, and APA style, this manual offers an authoritative reference and citation system. It also covers the treatment of numbers, statistical and mathematical data, tables and figures.
