APSA book citation for APSA format

Any information that appears in your paper and that is not your own requires citation. There are two purposes behind using citations in your work. First, it eliminates the threat of plagiarism if done correctly. Second, it shows that you did not create the facts, ideas, or theories, that someone else is responsible for them.

The second reason to cite is to lend credibility to the facts you use. It also helps you avoid complete blame if you use an incorrect fact. There is a common knowledge exception to citing facts. Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to determine what is and what is not common knowledge. To be safe, cite your sources for the facts.

Citing a source includes direct quotes, as well as paraphrases of information and general ideas. One easily implemented system is the American Political Science Association’s (APSA citation generator) parenthetical citation system, in which source information is provided in the text in parentheses. Typically, the citation, which appears in parentheses right after the direct quote, paraphrase, etc. It is common practice to use APSA style citing sources like blogs, videos, TV shows or radio shows.
