Using Academic Sources

This is a companion guide to "Finding Academic Sources". Its goal is to make student researchers more comfortable with using scholarly material in their own research.

APA Resources

APA has its own website with FAQs as well as tutorials to help answer questions. The APA Reference Examples has over 40 examples of sources -- both in-text and reference citations. The APA blog can also be very helpful if you have an usual source that you need to cite.
