APA reference guide

RU requires high quality of scholarly work and projects and thus requires citing sources according to accredited citation styles. Correct citations in projects can be defining when it comes to academic assessment of projects.

APA citation style refers to the rules and conventions established by the American Psychological Association for documenting sources used in research papers and thesis. Used within the School of Business, Psychology, Sport Science, Preliminary Studies and partly within the School of Science and Engineering.

APA style requires two elements for citing sources: Reference citations in text and a Reference list. Together these elements identify and credit the sources consulted in the paper and allow others to access or retrieve the material.
