Citing: Reference Examples

Reference Examples

These citations will show you how to piece together the elements of an APA reference. Your references page should be inserted at the end of your paper and include the full citation for every source you cited in your paper, in alphabetical order and with a .5" hanging indent (see below). For more in-depth help, see the Excelsior OWL page on APA references, borrow a copy of the manual from the library, or ask a librarian for further assistance.


Visit the APAStyle References page for additional information, including examples of textual works, data sets, audiovisual media, and online media.
