Student papers in APA style require the following:
Not required for student papers (unless required by instructor):
The function of your sources is to support your own content and conclusions.
The quote sandwich is a method to properly incorporate borrowed materials into your papers. Your embedded librarian expects that quotes will be properly incorporated into your work. This isn't a difficult task, though it may be something you haven't done before. Be patient and ask your embedded librarian for help if you need it. Your grades will benefit from properly incorporating sources.
See the link below for information and examples of how to incorporate your source material into your papers.
PubMed Central (PMC) is a database of biomedical and life sciences journal literature at the U.S. National Institutes of Health's National Library of Medicine (NIH/NLM). Articles found through PMC should be cited as journal articles, not as web pages. All the information needed to cite the article is provided by PMC. See the example below.
To cite this journal article, I need to follow the model provided in the APA style playbook, under Articles. The article I'm using has a DOI (digital object identifier, a unique ID for journal articles), so I will cite the article following this model:
Author Last Name, Initials. (Year). Article title. Journal Title, volume #(issue #), pages. https://doi.org/.........
(Note: The article I'm citing has 7 authors, and according to the APA style rules, all must be documented.)
My citation would look like this:
Van Speybroeck, A., Beierwaltes, P., Hopson, B., McKee, S., Raman, L., Rao, R., & Sherlock, R. (2020). Gallstone ileus, clinical presentation, diagnostic and treatment approach. Journal of Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine, 13(4),499-511. https://doi.org/10.3233/PRM-200738
The parenthetical citation would be:
(Van Speybroeck et al., 2020).
Images are not added to the References list. They are documented within the body of your paper. See the items linked below.
Before you send in your paper for an APA check, please run through the checklist linked below and make sure you have everything that's needed. If you have any questions about any of the items, contact your embedded librarian.
