Typepad HTML Email Ideally, you should find another source. Without the ability to retrieve the source, no one can use it or verify the information.

Typepad HTML Email If you just want to say that you used Skype to conduct your research, you do not need any citation. Just put the URL for Skype in the text. To cite actual information from the page you linked to, the citation would be Skype. (n.d.). About Skype. Retrieved from http://www.skype.com/en/about/. In text: (Skype, n.d.).

Typepad HTML Email The citations for the tweets should be in the regular reference list, alphabetized by author alongside all your other regular references. You don’t need to create a separate section by hashtag.

Typepad HTML Email The information in the copyright statement should refer to the actual image being reproduced as closely as possible. Thus if the image has its own title and its own photographer, you use those in the copyright statement in the appropriate places. For the example I provided, the titles were sort of all together on the page, so I used the whole thing in the copyright statement. Sometimes it is ambiguous what the title of something is on a webpage and getting it to fit into the template is a judgment call; in those cases, more information is better than less (hence the combined title). As long as you supply information about where the source comes from and who owns its copyright, you will have fulfilled the purpose of the copyright statement.

Typepad HTML Email The author is the company: Accenture. Other than that, the reference is straightforward: Put the company as the author, 2015 as the year, the title of the report in italics, and the URL.

Typepad HTML Email Yes, a copyright statement is not necessary to illustrate the image in this blog post because APA bought the rights for it from a stock image company.

Typepad HTML Email Sure, the chapter name is good for telling readers where you found the quotation. Also be more specific with a section name or paragraph number if you cane. For the download, just put the site in the source part of the statement: Retrieved from http://www.book4you.com

Typepad HTML Email No, the reverse is not a rule. So you’d write “2014 update.”

Typepad HTML Email You should actually go by the alphabetical order of the title. Some dates may be a year only, some may be year and month, and some may be year, month, and day. That way you don’t have to figure out how to deal with all that!

Typepad HTML Email Your reference has one too many “in” statements. You only need one. Jacobson, R. A. (2014a). Book one of the psalter: Psalms 1–41. In R. L. Hubbard (General Ed.), The New International Commentary on the Old Testament: The book of psalms (pp. 55–391). Grand Rapids, MI: Eerdmans. The volume editors don’t make it into the reference.

Typepad HTML Email The title of the playlist appears to be “Chapter 1” as shown at the top of the screen. That is what I would use in the reference.
1 reply
Typepad HTML Email Yes, the user name of who created the playlist should be the author. Otherwise the citation is like that of a website.

Typepad HTML Email This is not discussed in APA Style so it is up to you. Is it an abbreviation your readers are likely to remember? Or one that is less familiar? Reintroduce the abbreviation if you think it would help the readers understand your text.

Typepad HTML Email You do not need to translate the name of the author in the reference list. In the text, you can translate the name of the author into English if you want to, but the citations should be in French because that is how the author is listed on the published article. So there would be one instance of the translated author, and the rest in French.

Typepad HTML Email If the quotation mark is part of the quotation, your example is correct. The sentence isn’t “over” until the citation has appeared.

Some readers have asked about how to format the citations for an intranet resource. If your audience can retrieve the intranet resource, the citation follows the format of the document type. For example, if it is a report by a company on a company intranet (let's call the company "XYZ Company"), the reference follows the corporate author report format: XYZ Company. (2014). Title of the report (Report No. 12345). Retrieved from http://intranetURLhere In text: (XYZ Company, 2014). If the audience of your paper cannot retrieve the document from the company's intranet (such as if you are writing for professional publication), then cite the intranet document as a personal communication. This format requires you to include the author of the report (here that's the company name), the words "personal communication," and the date you retrieved the document. You may wish to provide additional information about the report in your text, depending on what information is relevant. Here's an example: Annual revenues for 2014 were disclosed in a report posted on the company intranet of XYZ Company (personal communication, December 21, 2015). For a personal communication citation, there is no reference list entry because the document cannot be retrieved.
