APA Style Guide

Mercy College courses require that students folow the formatting and citation rules set forth in the 6th edition of the America Psychological Association Publication Manual. You can download a PDF of the Official Mercy College APA Guide at the right.

Additional APA resources are available in the Mercy College Library LOR on D2L.

Citing Sources

  • APA Style Blog    The APA blogs examples and clarifications of the manual's rules often. It can be a good place to check for the official word on tricky types of citations.                 
  • Purdue University OWL The online writing lab at Purdue is often considered the go-to for examples of correct APA citation.

  • CrossRef.org Use this search to find the doi of an article if the article itself does not list one. Keep in mind, not all articles have doi numbers assigned!
