APA Top Tips

1. Remember why we cite: Credit your sources, build your credibility, and save time (yours, if you want to find things again, and your instructors' if they need to check)

2. Ask yourself 'what am I actually referencing?'. Is it an article? A book? A chapter? A video? The way you cite something depends on the type of source it is.

3. Follow an online APA guide to help you make your citations.

3. Use a citation tool: Many of our databases will format the references for you! Find the video on the right to learn more. But check an APA guide to make sure there are no mistakes!

4. Use citation tools in Microsoft word, such as the hanging indent tool, case tool, and alphabetization tool. See the Microsoft Word Citation Tool videos on this page to learn more.

6. Do you have a lot of assignments requiring reference lists or works cited lists? You might want to try Zotero, a citation manager to do the formatting for you!
