This Guide will show you how to cite materials (reference list, in-text citations) in your assignments using the APA 7th Edition
2. When the page opens, find the type of citation that you wish to insert
- the reference list records all of the sources that you cite in your paper
- an in-text citation gives credit to an author's work that you mention in the body of your paper
- when you paraphrase a source, you describe the content in your own words
- when you quote from a source, you copy the author's words using quotation marks
To set up your citation, just 'fill in the blanks' using publication info from your article, book, etc.
3. The examples below each template show you what your completed citation should look like

Here are a few tips for common questions about APA citations:
2. If you do not know the name of the author start your citation with the title of the article.
Should Toronto allow developers to block bike lanes and sidewalks?. (2020, January 9). The Toronto Star. https://login.gbcprx01.georgebrown.ca/login?url=https://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=edscpi&AN=edscpi.A610891005&site=eds-live&scope=site
3. For in-text citations where there is no author use part of the title and add "quotation marks".
Example: ("Should Toronto allow", 2020)
4. All titles and subtitles should be written in sentence case. Only the first letter and proper nouns will have capital letters.
Example: Should Toronto build more bike lanes? City council to discuss.
