Q. How do I cite a source from a mobile application?


When doing any sort of citation, you want to make sure that you are giving your reader enough information to find the source you cited on your References Page.  The device is not important, it is the content and where you found the content.

For details on how to do citations, please view the APA Help Guide.

Therefore, if you are reading an newspaper article on your phone, you will still cite the article as a newspaper article that you got from either a website or one of Baker's databases. You will still use the same formula you would use for any other APA citation. 

If you need additional assistance, please contact your Campus Librarians.  Thank you for using ASK US.
