The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, Seventh Edition is the official source for APA Style and should be the first source to consult when you have APA-related questions.
The APA Style home page is an outstanding resource. Click on the APA Style logo on the right and then look for
the "Style and Grammar Guidelines" tab. You'll find easy-to-follow instructions for all your APA formatting questions.

The Purdue University Online Writing Lab (OWL) offers additional guidelines on APA style rules. It provides clear examples of in-text citations and reference page entries for a variety of print and online resources and is used by many universities. You may, occasionally, find inconsistencies between the OWL and the APA Manual. In such cases we advise consulting your course syllabus and following the guidelines in the APA Manual.
