DMU Referencing Guide: APA

APA basics

The American Psychological Association (APA) referencing style is a author-date citation system used in some social sciences subjects. Cite them right online provides guidance on how to  use the APA 6th edition and APA 7th edition referencing styles.

How to use Cite Them Right

  • Search - use the search box on the homepage, or in the top right corner of the site, to look for the type of source you want to reference. You can then filter the results by referencing style.

  • Browse - use the menu navigation to see what's available. Clicking on a category will reveal the types of sources in that category. There may be a subcategory to help you refine what you're looking for.

  • The ‘You try’ feature on each source page enables you to easily construct your own reference by replacing the example text with information relevant to your source.
