APA referencing in a nutshell
In your text
- cite your sources in author-date-page format:
(Hickey, 2011, p. 177).
Hickey (2011, p. 62).
Hickey (2011) ... (p. 108).
At the end of your document
- provide a bibliography (entitled references in bold capitals) listing all the works cited in your text, with full references in author-date format and in A-Z order:
Hickey, M. A. (2011). Get real: Reality and mystery. University Press of America.
You should follow the precise rules specified in the APA Publication Manual (unless otherwise directed).
