APA Tips

  • 8.17 (Table 8.1): In in-text citations, use et al. for all citations for sources with three or more authors. 

  • 9.35: Both DOIs and URLs should be presented as hyperlinks (beginning with "http://" or "https://"). Standardize DOIs as starting with "https://doi.org/". In documents to be read online, use live links. Blue/underlined or plain black text, not underlined, are both acceptable. Suggest consistency

  • 9.25: Include issue number for all periodicals that have issue numbers..

  • Please avoid secondary sources. Dates listed in secondary source citations 8.6: Secondary source citation includes the date of the original source.

  • 9.29: Do not include publisher location (city, state, etc.) after publisher name in a reference.

  • 9.34: Both DOIs and URLs should be presented as hyperlinks (beginning with "http://" or "https://"). Standardize DOIs as starting with "https://doi.org/". In documents to be read online, use live links. Blue/underlined or plain black text, not underlined, are both acceptable.

  • 9.35: The words "Retrieved from" or "Accessed from" are no longer necessary before a URL. The only time the word "Retrieved" (and not ?Walden?????? "Retrieved from") is needed is in those rare cases where a retrieval date is necessary (see p. 290, 9.16).
