APA Citations

Harrison College uses the 6th ed. Concise Rules of APA Style (2010). This writing style, from the American Psychological Association, creates a framework for formatting papers and citing reference sources that will be used for all classes at Harrison College.

The purpose of this online guide is to allow for a more consistent style format for our current faculty and student population. You will find information on the three components of APA - formatting, in-text citations, and the references page.

Navigate this guide by using the orange tabs at the top of your screen. 

To learn more about APA, watch this tutorial. It describes, in detail, the basics of APA style.
