Creating a Reference List
In APA, there is a list of references instead of a bibliography. All references cited in the text of a paper
must be listed alphabetically by first author's last name and double spaced. Unlike a bibliography, which
includes resources in addition to those cited in the text, APA references must be cited within the text.
Example:
APA Publications and Communications Board Working Group on Journal Article Reporting
Standards. (2009). Reporting standards for research in psychology: Why do we need
them? What might they be? American Psychologist, 63, 839851. doi:10.1037/0003-
066X.63.9.839
How to Reference Web-based Citations
General guidelines:
Correct format for the DOI in references is in lower case: doi:xxxxxx
If you include the DOI, you don't need any further electronic retrieval information
