APA Guides and Resources

The following APA resources will help you cite in-text, create a reference list, and format your paper.

Citation Help from Student Learning Services

Student Learning Services provides in-depth help with citation.

  • Attend an MLA or APA workshop (registration is required).
  • Complete the self-paced online APA tutorial, available on D2L. Click here then select “Enroll in Course” to get started. (Make sure you’re logged in using @mtroyal.ca credentials.)
  • Book a one-on-one appointment to meet with a Learning Strategist online or in person.

Citing Images in APA

If your assignment requires you to use images, consider the following:

  • Do you have the right to use the image in your project? (see the MRU copyright guide for more information)
  • How does your instructor want you to cite the photo in your paper, on your slides, or on your poster?
    • with a figure note (see the handout below or chapter 7 of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 7th edition) 
    • using a regular in-text citation with the image creator's last name and year below the image  e.g. (Smith, 2015)

While the APA manual officially recommends figure notes, your instructor may be okay with you using parentheses - it is best to confirm with them directly.
