APA Style Resource Guide: Cite with APA

APA Style @ MUIH

The Maryland University of Integrative Health requires students to use the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 7th edition as a style guide, especially for working with in-text citations and reference list entries.  If you are new to APA Style explore the resources in the Learn APA Style on the left box below.  If you are familiar with APA Style and need an answer, utilize the material within the box below on the right titled Do you know APA citation style and have a specific question?...


Please note, while library staff can direct library patrons to resources concerning how to formulate proper in-text citations and reference list entries, library personnel do not teach writing, or proofread papers, or create citations and reference list entries for library patrons.  Additionally, the use and interoperability of writing and citation management software with Library databases is beyond the Library’s scope of service.
