Page Header (Running Head)
References provide bibliographic information for the sources you used, thereby allowing your reader to identify and locate those materials. To format the page:
In-text citations in the body of your manuscript point the reader to specific sources listed in your References. They usually include:
Author's name in text
Author has expressed this concern (1995, p.128).
Author's name in parenthetical reference
This concern has been expressed (Baily & Sage, 1988, p.128).
Consult the Works Cited Examples page or the attached guide for examples of in-text citations and work cited entries.
Additional electronic resource examples can be found on the APA Style Blog and OWL Purdue APA Guide.
A word of caution: Citation generators are only as accurate as the information that you put in them. If you don't know how to find the publisher name or the difference between a journal and article title, citation generators usually will not give you correct citations. Use these with caution, until you are comfortable reading and writing citations on your own.
