Overview of Business Citations

This page contains examples of American Psychological Association (APA) citations for some of the most commonly used electronic business resources. The examples here are only models, and you should always check with the most current version of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association to be sure your citations are correct. The most recent copy of the APA Manual is available at the Sterne Library Reference Desk.

Remember that all lines after the first line of each entry in your reference list should be indented one-half inch from the left margin.
