APSA journal citation in APSA format

You obliged to cite a source in case you have used a direct quote, acknowledge the quote by placing it inside quotation marks and then naming the author. Whenever you paraphrased content – ideas, written text, or thoughts – place the credit within your research paper where your paraphrase occurs and at the end of the paper in the bibliography. It is compulsory to credit artist or creator of the photos, images, or other art  you used, naming the artist or creator underneath the image. You can also use footnotes, endnotes or parenthetical remarks to cite content in research papers.

There is no single standard for citing or referencing online sources correctly; instead there are several guidelines based on style preferences. It is important for teachers to identify the style they require, and for students to follow that style when turning in work.

Core elements in citing material within free citation machine in any style ( AMA, HARVARD, MLA ) include the author’s last name, first name (when known); the title of the specific document, article, or work in quotes, (when known); the title of the larger work if there is one, the date when the article was published (when available); the date of the last revision if any; the date you accessed the material, and for internet resources, the URL where the content is hosted.
