APA Citation Guide
All quoted, paraphrased, or summarized information (i.e. any thoughts that are not your own) must be cited in the text and in a concluding reference list. In an APA paper, footnotes are used for “asides” or clarifying information, not citations.
In-text citations need:
- the author’s or authors’ last name(s),
- the year, and
- when possible, specific page numbers.
Title Case Capitalization (for use in your text)
Capitalize the first word of a title, the first word of a subtitle, major words, and words 4+ letters long.
It’s Still Greek to Me: An Easy-to-Understand Guide to Intermediate Greek.
Sentence Case Capitalization (for use in reference lists)
Capitalize the first word of a title, the first word of a subtitle, and proper nouns.
It’s still Greek to me: An easy-to-understand guide to intermediate Greek.
- When you cite an online source, look for a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). A DOI is a durable link your reader can use to return to your source. Include the DOI in your reference list citation.
- Make the DOI into a clickable hyperlink by adding the DOI to the end of the web address https://doi.org/
- If there is no DOI, use a URL, unless you accessed the source through a database that requires a login.
- Do not add periods to the end of DOIs or URLs.
