References cited in-text must be in the reference list and vice versa.
An APA style reference generally includes the author, year of publication, title, and publishing data.
References are listed alphabetically by the first author’s surname or by title if there is no author.
Invert all authors’ names using surname and initials for up to and including 7 authors. When there are 8 or more authors, include the first 6 authors' names, insert 3 ellipses, and add the last author's name.
Indent all lines after the first line of each entry in your reference list one-half inch from the left margin.
Periodical (e.g. journal, magazine) titles are italicized and upper and lower case letters are used.
For an online periodical article, include the DOI (a unique alphanumeric string that provides a persistent link to its location on the Internet) when available. No further retrieval information is needed. If no DOI is available, give the home page URL of the journal.
