APA is an author-date citation style. It is commonly used for Psychology, Nursing, Education, Business, and other areas. This style allows readers to locate information sources via short in-text citations, with full details in the reference list.
Based on the 7th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, this guide provides general instructions and examples for citing a range of sources. Access the grey tabs for the guide menu or see the guide index.

New! Heard about Generative AI (such as ChatGPT), and wondering how to reference it in your assignments?
It is an expectation of the University of Newcastle that all work submitted for assessment is the student's own original work. Prior permission must be obtained from a course coordinator before submitting work generated using an AI tool.
If using Generative AI is permitted for your course, we've got referencing it correctly covered! See the newly added Generative AI section.
