THIS IS A QUICK GUIDE TO THE APA REFERENCING STYLE (6TH EDITION)                                          

     The American Psychological Association reference style uses the Author-Date format. 
     Refer to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed.) for more information. Check Library Search for call number and location(s). 
     When quoting directly or indirectly from a source, the source must be acknowledged in the text by author name and year of publication. 
To cite information directly or indirectly, there are two ways to acknowledge citations: 
1) Make it a part of a sentence or 2) put it in parentheses at the end of the sentence. 
Direct quotation – use quotation marks around the quote and include page numbers
1)    Cohen and Lotan (2014) argue that "many different kinds of abilities are essential for any profession" (p.151). 
2)    “Many different kinds of abilities are essential for any profession" (Cohen & Lotan, 2014, p.151).
N.B. See the Library’s APA webpage for a quotation of 40 or more words.   Indirect quotation/paraphrasing/summarising – no quotation marks
1)    Professional knowledge alone does not make someone a very capable professional (Cohen & Lotan, 2014).
2)    According to Cohen and Lotan (2014), professional knowledge alone does not make someone a very capable professional.
N.B. Page numbers are optional when paraphrasing, although it is useful to include them (Publication Manual, p. 171).
Citations from a secondary source
1)    Gould’s (1981) research “raises fundamental doubts as to whether we can continue to think of intelligence as unidimensional” (as cited in Cohen & Lotan, 2014, pp. 151-152).  
2)    Intelligence cannot be believed to consist of one single entity any more (Gould, 1981, as cited in Cohen & Lotan, 2014).
N.B. To cite a source you found in another source, you must acknowledge all the authors.
             The author(s) of the source referred to                                                                                                              i.e. Gould, 1981
             The author(s) of the work which contains the original source             i.e. Cohen & Lotan, 2014 In the reference list, only the book by Cohen & Lotan should be acknowledged. Do not list Gould.
     At the end of your assignment, you are required to provide the full bibliographic information for each source. References must be listed in alphabetical order by author.
