Getting Started

Welcome! 

APA style is most commonly used to cite sources used in writing in Psychology, Education, Nursing and Sociology. This guide will provide specific examples of source citations in most current, 6th edition. In the tabs above, there are examples of references page citations, in-text citations, as well as a formatting example. If still unclear, please contact your campus librarian or use the Ask A Librarian tab for a quick chat.

Why do we need to learn citation?

According to Oxford English Dictionary, Plagiarism is defined as: The action or practice of taking someone else's work, idea, etc., and passing it off as one's own; literary theft. 

Plagiarism. (2006). In Oxfored English Dictionary Online (3rd ed.), Retrieved from http://www.oed.com

In other words, unless the information that you are using consist of your own thoughts or common knowledge (VERY common, like the year when Columbus crossed the ocean blue), you have to attribute it to the person whom originally produced it. 

Below, find a video explaining plagiarism. If you have further questions on the concept, please contact your campus librarian.
