As a general rule, use APA style in Psychology, Education, Health Sciences, Business, and other social sciences.
The APA style rules were created by the American Psychological Association to provide standards for scientific communication and are widely used by many disciplines.
The latest edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association is the 7th Edition (2020). You can find the print copy in the Reference Area of the Library on the Writing Guide Shelf.
In Psychology, Business, Education, Health Sciences and many science courses, you will be required to use APA format. Always ask your Professor what style to use before starting your paper.
Remember that most Library Databases will format your citations for you! Look for a tool or icon to CITE.
Citation Builders can be a helpful tool. Be sure that you enter all the information carefully including spelling and capitalization.
You must check your citations for accuracy after they have been formatted!
