The examples found in the APA section are based on the style guide Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th ed., 2010 and the APA Style Guide to Electronic References, 6th ed., 2012.
- In APA style, your full citations are listed at the end of your paper in your List of References.
- On a new double-spaced page titled “References”, list your citations in alphabetical order using the author’s last name. If there is no author, use the title.
- If your citation is longer than one line, indent indent all the lines after the first one by 1.25 cm (this is called a hanging indentation).
