About APA Style

APA is one of the most important citation styles, used not only in Psychology but across all of the social sciences and other disciplines, including: Psychology, Social Work, Business, Marketing, and more.

References are made through in-text, parenthetical notation and a full reference list at the end of the paper.

See a librarian if you need help using this or any citation style.
