APA Style 6th Edition: In-Text Citations, Quotations, and Plagiarism



This video will show you how to set up your paper following correct APA Style guidelines in Microsoft Word 2010 for PC. This specific video focuses on using parenthetical and in-text citations, quotations, and how to properly credit authors to avoid plagiarism.

The steps should be very similar on every version of Word since 2007 for PC. On Word for Mac, I believe the steps are the same, but the interface is different.

For how to make a Title Page and Running Head:

For how to make a Reference List:

    If you were citing a photograph, would you site the photographer or the people in the photograph? And what if the photographer's name isn't listed?

    What if the article I used doesn't provide an author's name? What should I do for my in-text citation?

    Do you not put the page #? for example (berry & Kohn's, 2013, p. 45). or is that only for direct quotes?

    What I would like to clarify is when must you cite within text? If requested to research a topic, you read three pieces of literature. Let's say a textbook, a website and a journal article. Then when you write your paper, the information in your paper is obviously what you learned, should this be cited?
