Before you begin... Confirm your instructors want you to follow APA 7th Edition guidelines as some instructors may be using the APA 6th Edition instead. While there are no major differences, there are minor and subtle changes.

We have designed this guide to help you:

  • quickly proof your citations (references and in-text citations) for accuracy or;
  • learn how to cite properly if you are new to APA, and;
  • learn more about why we cite, academic integrity, and their importance in academic writing and research. 

This guide is a solid start and will satisfy the majority of students' APA needs. Quick Links provide access to more in-depth resources.
