APA 6th Edition Citation Examples: General Rules

APA Citation Examples

Based on APA Publication Manual, 6th Edition (2009) and APA Style Guide to Electronic References (2012)

The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association is the APA's official citation guide and provides a more detailed explanation of how to use APA style. The manual is unfortunately not available online, but reference copies are available in all 17 University of Maryland libraries.

The APA Style Guide to Electronic References (2012) focuses solely on the citing of electronic resources and includes a wide variety of citation examples.

Note: the APA Publication Manual, 7th Edition was released in October 2019, but UMGC will use the APA 6th Edition until further notice.
