Cite Your Sources: APA Style

This guide provides information on citation styles, how to read a citation and how to avoid plagiarism.

APA Style

APA style is used in the social science disciplines such as psychology, sociology, and anthropology. The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association  is not available online, although some supplementary information is available at the APA's website.  Print copies are available at the Reference Desk at the PSU Library.

For examples of APA citations, see the Online Writing Lab at Purdue University.
