"APA (American Psychological Association) style is most commonly used to cite sources within the social sciences. This resource, revised according to the 6th edition, second printing of the APA manual, offers examples for the general format of APA research papers, in-text citations, endnotes/footnotes, and the reference page. For more information, please consult the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, (6th ed., 2nd printing)" (The OWL).

"APA relies on an author-date system, in which an abbreviated form of the author's name (last name and first initial) is followed by the date of publication. In APA, writers do not construct bibliographies, as they would in the Humanities, but compile lists of references made within the text. The APA style encourages the quick correlation of references made within the text with those found in the reference list itself. The APA style also gives writers an effective way to compile and summarize the research of others in their own writing" (Trinity College).
