APA 6th Edition Referencing: What does an APA Reference look like

This is a Wintec guide to help you with referencing in the American Psychological Association (APA) style.

What does an APA Reference look like?


Reference list entries and in-text citations look different for different kinds of resources. A book reference is different from a journal article reference, and a webpage is different again - but they all have a lot of the same information in them. Have a look at these reference examples and see if it makes sense to you!

Remember, you can always look at the Wintec APA Referencing Guide or ask for help! You don't have to figure out referencing on your own.
