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.


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. 


Watch the following video to learn why it necessary to cite sources.
