APA Format – In-Text Citation and Reference Page

When completing your work term report please remember all secondary information included in your report MUST have BOTH in-text citation and be listed on a reference page. Including a list of references on a reference page without in-text citation is considered plagiarism as you have not indicated what information in the body of the report you have taken from someone else’s work.

Two ways to use secondary information are:

  1. Direct quote (word for word from a secondary source), requires you to put the information in quotation marks.
  2. Secondary information written in your own words does not require quotation marks BUT you still must use in-text citation.

Please use the link below which is included in the work term report requirements document to ensure all of your in-text citing and Reference List page are formatted based on APA style.

The Library website also includes a program called RefWorks which can provide assistance in referencing secondary material in your report.

“RefWorks is a web-based citation manager that allows you to compile, edit and format bibliographies by importing references directly from online databases or by entering them manually and inserting them into your finished paper in the citation style of your choice (MUST use APA).” – http://libraries.dal.ca/research/refworks.html

PLEASE NOTE: For APA Format the listing of references at the end of your document is called “References” NOT “Bibliography” or “Work Cited”.

If you need assistance using this software please contact the Library directly.Secondary Sources

At least six external credible secondary sources are required for this work term report (Wikipedia is NOT a credible source). It also essential not to obtain all of your information from one source but rather a variety. Secondary sources are required to support information included in three sections of the report.
