The APA manual is the standard for the APA style in Norway, and we encourage everyone to use this. Examples and guidelines in the Norwegian standard:
NB! Kildekompasset is based on the APA manual, so remember to check that the date in Kildekompasset is newer than the date in the APA manual.
There are some changes from the previous edition (APA 6), including:
- Do not use "retrieved" when referring to web pages in your reference list (page 64 in the APA manual).
- Do not include location in your reference list when referring to books. ONLY publisher! (page 25 in the APA manual).
- New rules when referring to 3 or more authors (page 6 in the APA manual).
- Preferably include page numbers in your reference list, not just for direct quotation (page 5 under Paraphrasing, and page 3-4 in the APA manual).
