APA Manual

APA style includes two key elements:

  • In-text citations: credit your sources for specific ideas that you use.
  • Reference list (bibliography): allow other readers to find those sources themselves.

You must include both in-text citations and a final reference list in your papers.

The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association provides guidelines for when and how to properly cite your sources.

Citation Management Software

Collecting and organizing citations can be one of the more frustrating tasks of research. Citation management software can help you save time by:

  • collecting citations (to articles, books, websites, etc.) from databases, library catalogues, web, etc.
  • organizing, editing and searching for citations
  • inserting and formatting citations and bibliographies into word processing
  • automatically formatting and reformatting references in particular styles e.g. APA, ACS, CBE/CSE or a particular journal's style

No citation management software is perfect! However, citation management software can save you valuable time formatting and organizing your research.
