APA Referencing Guide — Tables/graphs and figures

Tables/graphs and figures referencing guide (PDF download).


  • All tables/ figures should be numbered so you can refer to them in your work.
  • Refer to your table/ figure by their number not their location in the text, e.g. see Table 1 not see Table 1 below.
  • The table number (e.g. Table 1) appears above the table in bold font.
  • The table title appears one double-spaced line below the table number in italic title case, e.g. Numbers of Children With and Without Proof of Parental Citizenship.
  • If you reuse or adapt a table/ figure from another source, the citation should refer to the original source (e.g. book, website, journal).
  • The original source is included in the reference list.
Format and order
  • Use the format and order of the source in which you found the table/ graph/ figure. See relevant section of this guide. The example below is from an ebook (see section 2.6).
