APA is a standard citation format for papers to give credit to authors whose work you use. APA is generally used for psychology, sociology and other social sciences. 

Most of our databases will generate an APA citation for the articles they contain.  Just click on the cite link and select APA.

For more information on citing your sources as well as how to do in-text references, check out our Citation Libguide or look at our APA Reference List handout.
