APA 7th

About APA 7th referencing

The American Psychological Association (APA) style covers several aspects of scholarly writing, including referencing. We recommend the use of the 7th edition as this is the most up-to-date version, providing greatest coverage of a wide range of referencing examples.

APA Style uses:

  • author-date in-text citations and 
  • a reference list to acknowledge sources.

What to do if something is not covered in the manual 

While APA 7th is used across many disciplines, there aren’t specific referencing rules for every type of information source. When this happens, you can use the basic principles outlined in the manual to create a reference entry for any type of work.
