APA 7 Style Guide

Everything you need to know to create a paper using APA style.

APA and Powerpoint

There's nothing particularly special about an APA presentation: unlike essays, there's no special way to structure your PowerPoint. The main thing is to follow APA format for your citations.
- You need a References slide at the end of your presentation (or multiple slides, if you have many sources).
- Individual slides all need APA style in-text citations where appropriate (i.e. anywhere you've used information not original to you).
- Best practices for PowerPoint and other presentations still apply: this is not a paper pasted into a slideshow. You should still make use of short, concise bullet points and images or other graphics to develop an engaging presentation.

  The LSC-CyFair Library building is closed until further notice.

  Online References Services are available while we're closed.
