APA 7th

Getting started

This APA 7th style guide is based on the citing and referencing sections of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (7th edition) and the APA Style website. This guide is designed to help you:

Apply the correct APA 7th format to different types of resources
Check your work against examples

Our interactive online tutorials can help you understand the basics of citing and referencing, and why it's important.

Elements of citing and referencing in APA 7th style

There are two places in your assignments and other academic work you need to cite and reference- in the body of your writing (in-text citations), and at the end of your work (in the reference list) where you provide full details of the works you have cited. 

The Quick Start Guide (below) will help you quickly become familiar with the key features of APA 7th, and their application.
