AMERICAN PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION (APA) STYLE (5th ed.)
Instructors in social sciences generally prefer students to use the APA documentation format. Like MLA style, APA style prefers in-text references that direct the reader to the list of references for more detailed information.
Unlike MLA style, APA style uses the term references rather than works cited. Give page numbers for items such as articles that appear within a larger work. Indent the first line of each entry in your references list. If your list of references contains two or more works by the same author, list the entries by date, with the earliest publication first.
