Engineering: APA Citation Style

This is a guide to finding published literature in all branches of engineering.

APA Citation Style

The American Psychological Association (APA) defines a style for citing bibliographic sources, such as articles and books. The style is used widely in many subjects, not just psychology.

For information about this style, see the guide Introduction to APA Style Citation.

For more detailed information about formatting papers in APA style, see the Purdue Online Writing Lab web site.
