The American Psychological Association (APA) has released a new edition of the APA referencing style - the 7th edition.
Please note that this updated edition has not yet been implemented at Southern Cross University. The University is working through the process of updating resources and course materials. This is a significant change, and it is not expected the change-over will occur until later in 2020. We will provide more information as timelines are confirmed.
Please check the guide provided by your School, Department, or lecturer, as it may vary from these guidelines and you may lose marks for not conforming to your school's requirements.
There are two components to referencing: citing within the text of your paper, and the reference list at the end.
Many thanks to the Red Deer College Library, for permission to use and adapt their APA Citation Style 6th Edition libguide.
EndNote software helps you store and manage your references and create bibliographies.
Download the SCU APA 6th edn style from our EndNote LibGuide to match the APA examples we give in our APA LibGuide.
Please note: This printable APA Quick Guide contains both in-text and reference list examples of ONLY the most common resource types. Please refer to the appropriate section of the online LibGuide for more comprehensive coverage of resource types.
