APA Citation Style (7th Edition)

APA Citation Style

Learn the basic conventions of citing sources in-text and in a reference list using the American Psychological Association (APA) Style, 7th edition.

What are 'annotations'?

When you have located your article and cite it, the annotation will go directly below the source citation.

What is an annotation?

Your annotation is a summary -- explain in 2-4 sentences what information the source contained, particularly what was important / interesting / unusual compared to other sources. Keep in mind you're summing up the information from the article, NOT providing an opinion on the content or conclusions.
