APA style is used by many of the social sciences, but primarily by psychology. It stipulates, among other things, how to cite sources in academic publications. APA is an abbreviation for the American Psychological Association.
Unfortunately, the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed.) is not available online. However, there are a few excellent crib sheets: Research and Documentation Online and The Everyday Writer. An internet search will find other online crib sheets, but when in doubt, check against the APA Manual or ask a Librarian.
For complete details on citing sources with APA style, consult the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed.). Print copies are available at the Baker-Berry Reference Desk and in the Reference collection BF76.7 .P83 2010. Additional copies are available at the Reserve Desk in the Researve Reading Room in Baker Library.
