If this is your first time referencing with APA 7, go through these resources in order:

Step 1 - Watch the Referencing Tips video (this will provide the foundation for a good referencing routine)

Step 2 - Go through the Academic Writer Tutorial: Basics of Seventh Edition APA Style interactive webpage (explains the fundamentals)

Step 3 - Look at the Sample APA 7 Essay (Annotated) (this demonstrates how your essays should be formatted)

Step 4 - Explore Ref@P (this is the official university-wide guidance for referencing)

Step 5 - Explore Gordon's SCCJ Learning Development Hub and set up an appointment with Gordon (he will help you improve your writing style and flow)

Step 6 - Book an appointment with your librarians (they will answer all of your referencing and research questions!)


Warning: do NOT use reference generators as these are NOT APA 7 compliant and you will lose marks.


Provide access to useful research materials from abstracts, academic journals, newspapers, e-books, and various multimedia.
