 A few notes about APA style

Things to remember when using APA style.

First, your reference list should appear at the end of your paper.

Second, your references should begin on a separate page from the text of the research paper with the title References (with no quotation marks, underlining, etc.), centered at the top of the page.

Third, authors' names are inverted – family name first, followed by the first initial of the author's given name. For example, if you were using my name in a reference it would be written as Romanko, R. NOT Rick Romanko or R, Romanko.

Fourth, reference list entries should be alphabetized by the family names of the first author of each work.

Finally, if you use a non-English source, cite the original version. Give the original title, and in brackets [   ], the English translation.
