APA Style Guide

Classroom resources

For works such as journal articles that have been reproduced without any changes, cite the source directly. For example, cite an article as though it had been accessed from the journal rather than from a Moodle course site.

Tips: Put a description of the work in [square brackets] after the title. (This is not necessary for common sources such as articles or books)  

  • Moodle@Selkirk is the name of the site
  • For sites requiring a login, provide the login page URL

Custom course materials

For custom course packs:

  • Cite the chapter or article as if it is a chapter in an edited book (refer to p. 326 of the Publication Manual)
  • The author will be the author of the material, not the course instructor. Add the course instructor who compiled the material as the editor (after the title of the article or chapter you're citing, e.g. In First Initial, Last Name, (Ed.)
  • The title of the course pack follows the editor, in italics
  • Include the publisher, which may be Selkirk College or a commercial press
