Generating the APA Citation for Your Abstract

GALILEO can be a great starting point for generating the APA citation for your abstract, but use caution when copying/pasting these citations into your document.

Not only do GALILEO citations come with some formatting issues (font, color, highlighting, etc.), but they've also been known to be incomplete and/or inaccurate at times.

When using a citation from GALILlEO (or one of its databases), always double-check the citation against an example from the Purdue OWL or an APA style manual. Be sure to follow proper APA capitalization rules for article titles and italicize the journal name and volume number (but not the issue number, if available).


Also make sure that your citation has been properly formatted according to APA style rules:
