This guide will help you cite sources in APA Citation Style 6th Edition.

Web page from a University site (p. 206)

Helpful Tip
  • When citing sources that you find on the Internet you only need to include a retrieval date if the information you viewed is likely to change over time (p. 192).  If you reference an article from Wikipedia, for example, you would want to include a retrieval date because information in a wiki can be subject to a lot of change.

General Guidelines for APA Style

  • All sources of information and data, whether quoted directly or paraphrased, are cited with parenthetical references in the text of your paper (p. 170-171).

      Example: (Walker, 2003).

  • Double-space your entire paper, including the References list and any block quotes (pp. 37, 41, 171, 180).
