How to cite by using the APA standard?

When you write an assignment, you have to provide the sources of the litterature you use, and acknowledge the contributions of other authors. That way your readers can also find your sources.

Check our APA page for information about self-plagiarism, how to use APA in Word and how to cite tables, figures and pictures.

Visit the Citation Compass and the APA manual for examples on how to cite different types of documents.
