APA7 Guide


This guide to the APA 7th edition is based on the APA 7th edition Publication Manual. Further details, explanations and examples are available in the manual. For other referencing styles and some general information on referencing go to the main Referencing & Citing guide.

Please check your Subject Outline, assessment guides or with your subject lecturers regarding the appropriateness of the various types of sources that can be used in your assignments.

The APA referencing style is an author-date citation style with two main features:

  • In-text citations, where you refer to another author's work. You must cite your source by providing the last name(s) of the author(s) and the year of publication.
  • The reference list which appears at the end of your assignment. This list includes full details of each source you have cited in-text, listing them in alphabetical order by the first author's last name.
