APA (7th Edition) Referencing Guide

Guide to APA citation style using the 7th Edition of the APA Style Manual.

APA style and grammar guidelines

The APA Style site has many useful resources. The APA Style and Grammar Guidelines provides brief help for most of the basic needs regarding referencing and formatting your work

Guides from other sources

APA is a standardised style, and you may find another guide layout is easier for you to understand, depending on your reading style. Please keep in mind that the JCU lecturers are using our guide when they mark your assignments, so don't follow advice from another guide if it is different from our own.
