APA Citation has been broken down into three sections: Print Sources, Online Sources, and Online Periodicals. For further examples and instruction, ask a teacher or librarian, stop by the Academic Resource Center, or visit the Purdue Online Writing Lab. OWL's offers several pages of helpful resources that range from Basic Rules to more specific citation examples.
Basic Book Format:
Author. Last, first initial. (Date). Title (italicized). City of publication, State/Country: Publisher.
(In the case of multiple authors, all are noted – separated by commas, with “&” sign before final author’s last name.)
Davis, R. E. (2006). Modern chemistry. Orlando: Holt, Rinehart and Winston.
Scholarly Journal (paginated by issue):
Baelish, P. (1973). King’s Landing: A geopolitical analysis of Machiavellian machinations in Seven Kingdoms Studies in Diplomacy, 15(1), 41–.
In APA periodical citation, authors are named by their last name followed by initials; the publication year goes between parentheses and is followed by a period. Only the first word and proper nouns are capitalized for article titles. Periodical titles are written in title case and followed by the volume number, which, with the title, is also italicized.
