If I just want to state a quote that someone said, do I put it only in quotation marks or do I italicize it too?
To use an exact quote just use quotation marks, according to the APA Help guide.
There are some examples in the Sample Paper, such as:
“Committed members are viewed as stable, productive, and more likely to accomplish organizational goals than their less committed colleagues” (Larkey & Morrill, 1995, p. 193).
Italics are used for titles of books, journals, and other sources. There are examples of proper use of italics on the APA Help guide when you click on References and In-text Citation Examples.
