Citing Sources: Psychology

When information is quoted, paraphrased, or summarized, the source of that information must be documented. Otherwise, you are guilty of plagiarism. To help you in avoiding plagiarism, see this tutorial.

Various standards have been created for citing sources. The recommended style manual for Psychology is the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (a copy of the 7th ed. is available in the Reference Collection at BF76.7.P83 2020 and at the Information Desk for in-library use).

See Citing Sources for more useful links about APA style.
