The APA Style Guide to Electronic References (2012) focuses solely on the citing of electronic resources and includes a wide variety of citation examples.
Note: the APA Publication Manual, 7th Edition was released in October 2019, but UMGC will use the APA 6th Edition until further notice.
The “APA style” is an author-date style for citing and referencing information in assignments and publications. This guide is based on the “Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association” 6th edition (2010).
