Citations, References, Quotes, and More
Consistency of citations. Make sure the date is always correct. Make sure to cite the author, not the article title. Table of Contents Make sure your subheadings and subheadings of the subheadings match WORD FOR WORD with what is listed in the Table of Contents. Tables and Figures Make sure these are formatted correctly and their title matches WORD FOR WORD with whats listed in the List of Tables and List of Figures. References
When to cite Whenever you are paraphrasing someone elses work. Whenever you are mentioning someone elses work. Whenever you are using a direct quote. Always cite using the author, not the article title. The first time you are citing a source, always list all of the authors unless there are 6 or more, then you may use et al. After the first time citing, if there is more than two authors, you may use et al. When using a direct quote always put the page number, or if its an online source, the paragraph number the quote can be found in.
Please make sure that you use a comma to separate the author and the year (and page number if it is a direct quote). When you are citing a source with more than one author in the text, you use the word and. Ex: John Smith and John Doe (2004) When citing a source with multiple authors in parenthesis, you use the & symbol. Ex: (Smith & Doe, 2004) tudies/AAABasic%20Citation%20Styles.pdf tudies/AAABasic%20Citation%20Styles.pdf
It is important that your wording always matches WORD FOR WORD with what is listed in your Table of Contents List of Tables List of Figures
A tables title is listed above the table like so: Table X (not italicized) Table Title (italicized) Make sure the table number is in normal Times New Roman 12 point font above the tables title, and the table title is in Time New Roman 12 point font but is italicized. Any notes on the table should be below it in 10 point Times New Roman font. A figures number (italicized) and title/caption (not italicized) should be below the figure with any notes and the source following the title, like so: Figure X. Caption for figure X, serving as an explanation of the figure and as a figure title. Source: APA Manual 6 th Edition

A general guide to the formatting of references can be found on our website: hesis/references hesis/ If no date for publication can be found still format everything the same, but put n.d. where the year would go. Do this in citations within the paper as well. When using APA 6 th Edition, you do not need to list the retrieval date for website information. Do, however make sure the URL you provide is working, leads DIRECTLY to the article used, and does not require one to sign up and create a password. If you cannot find a specific person as an author, please list the group that published the piece. Ex: The American Museum of Natural History. (n.d.). The history of human evolution. Retrieved from history-of-human-evolution history-of-human-evolution
If you are listing a dictionary source, you first list the word you defined, the copyright date, the dictionary you got the definition from, and the website if found online; if found in an actual book you would list the edition of the book (if given), the city, state and publisher. Ex: Symbiotic. (2013). In Merriam-Webster's online dictionary. Retrieved from webster.com/dictionary/symbiotichttp://www.merriam- webster.com/dictionary/symbiotic Symbiotic. (2013). In Merriam-Webster's dictionary (11th ed.). Springfield, MA: Merriam-Webster, Inc. If you have multiple articles from the same author in the same year, you must differentiate them like so: Smith, J. (2004a) Smith, J. (2004b) Please also list the year like this in the citation to help alleviate any confusion as to which article you are referencing. When in doubt, Google!
