Tips regarding APA Referencing
#1 Tip: remember the hanging indent, though some examples you will see don't have it, it is part of the style and you should format your bibliography this way. If you have trouble figuring using tabs with cut and paste materials, try changing your margins with the ruler in Word.
#2 Tip: listen to your professor! Professors will give exceptions or specific examples of how they want things to look that may not follow the exact APA Style. For example some professors are ok with using numbers (instead of in cite citations) or putting figure information on separate pages, so it is important to get specific clarification from your professor on what is acceptable for the particular project.
#3 Tip: if you are unsure about your citation ask your librarian for advice.
#4 Tip: remember all title words should be lower case, except the first word in the title, the first word after a colon, or proper nouns.
#5 Tip: if there is no date, put (n.d.)., except for archival materials put [ca. 1972].
#6 Tip: unless otherwise indicated images and photographs should be referenced as figures. However for class work, there is no need to include the reprinted with permission statement. It is important to get copyright permission for documents you will publish including theses.
