APA is a set of guidelines published by the American Psychological Association. It is one of the more common referencing guidelines. It covers how to lay out your work, reference your sources, and using bias free language.
Use in-text references (also known as citations) when you are referring to, paraphrasing, or directly quoting another work. This includes works by other authors, corporations and organisations. Under APA you should also reference your own published work. There are two ways you should use in-text references, parenthetical citation and narrative citation.
