RefWorks can also help you format citations



Because of software limitations, examples in this guide may not display properly.  Remember: 
  • APA requires a hanging indent for its citations.
  • Please be sure to double space citations. (For space saving reasons, the citations in this guide are single spaced.)
You cannot rely totally on online databases or citation generators to create references.  They are not always accurate. 
  • Always  proof-read a citation generated by RefWorks 
  • Always  proof-read a citation provided by a database (I-Share, EBSCO, etc.)


The Benedictine Library offers this information as a guide only. We cannot offer suggestions or interpretations about citations. Please refer to the actual APA Style Manual , the Writing Zone, or your instructor for clarification.
