Referencing using APA 7th: an introduction

This introduction is also available as a PDF download.

When you have included anything from published sources in your work, you must acknowledge it fully and accurately by:

  • identifying your sources, in a brief format, in the body of your written work (referred to as an in-text citation).
  • providing a detailed list of your sources in alphabetical order at the end of your work (known as a reference list).

The University referencing style is APA 7th, published by the American Psychological Association. Key changes from APA 6th to 7th are summarised here. Some departments use slightly varying rules, so always check your module handbook.
