Page 1 of 19 Revised 26.v.2019 The Charles Sturt University APA Referencing SummaryBased on the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association(6th ed.) This summary gives examples of the APA referencing style for a number of commonly used information sources. If you cannot find a model to cite a source, then choose an example that is close to the source you are using, and follow the format provided (APA, 2010, p. 193). Otherwise, refer to the APA Publication Manual(6th ed.). Other useful resources are listed on page 17. If in doubt when citing a paper, err on the side of giving too much information, rather than too little (APA, 2010, p. 193). You should explore using the EndNotesoftware, which you can download for free from the library website. EndNotehelps you to cite your sources correctly and to organise your research and notes. Go to the CSU library guide for Endnote .

Charles Sturt University - Academic Skills Page 2 of 19 Revised 26.v.2019 The Reference List In-text Citations Page and Paragraph Numbers(APA, 2010, p. 180; Perrin, 2018, p. 63, para. 4a. Also APA, 2010, p. 184, para. 6.27; Perrin, 2018, p.64, para. 4b) See p. 19 for an example of a reference list. A reference list is an alphabetically arranged list of sources used in a paper. It starts on a new page immediately after the last page of the paper. The list has the heading References(centred, not bold, not in italics, and not underlined). Each item on your list has a hanging indent of 1 cm. (Highlight text + Ctrl T). See the examples on the following pages. No bullets or numbers. It is helpful to add extra space (8 pts) after each entry. Hint:begin your reference list as you start work on your assignment, adding items as you locate each source. This will save time and energy later. EndNotewill help with this. 1. Names of authors appear in the order listed on the title page, not alphabetical order. The names of up to and including seven authors are listed, with all of their names inverted (e.g. Smith, P. G.). An ampersand (&) joins the last two names in the series. 2. If a work has eight or more authors, the first six are listed in full, followed by an ellipsis, and then the last author’s name. An ellipsis ( . . . ) is three periods with a space before each and a space after the last.
