APA style, created by the American Psychological Association, is primarily used in behavioral and social sciences. Currently, the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (2019) is in its 7th edition. The style rules are subject to change with every new edition, so always make sure you are working with the most up-to-date version.
APA reference list citations are all based on four pieces of data, presented in this order: author, date of publication, title, and how/where to access.
Author surname, initial. (Date). Title of Resource. Retrieval information.
