APA Image from a periodical citation for APA format

Citations let your professor, or anyone else that reads your work, find the items you used in your research. The key to a successful citation is providing all of the information so your reader can find the book, article, website or other item you are citing.

Citing builds your credibility and shows that your ideas are shared by other scholars studying in the same field. Citing scholarly peer-reviewed sources lends extra credibility to your work.

Visual material such as tables and figures can be used quickly and efficiently to present a large amount of information to an audience, but visuals must be used to assist communication, not to use up space, or disguise marginally significant results behind a screen of complicated statistics.

APA formatting refers to graphs, charts, maps, drawing, photographs and images as figures.  Figures can be incorporated into your document, or be included at the end of your paper in an appendices according to APA citation guide style. Image has to be presented  in a box with a description underneath the image with the information about the source of the image. The image has to be label as a Figure. It is unnecessary to include the image in the Reference list at the end of your paper. When you are referencing your image in the body of your paper, you will refer to the image as Figure X.
Note, in case when you create your own images/charts/diagrams, you will not have to provide a citation. However the image will still need to be labeled as Figure X and inserted into your paper, as a Figure. You will still need to include a description of the image.
