Q. How do I cite a survey on the reference page?
I took a survey of students and used it in my research paper. How do I cite that since it's not a published piece of writing?
Personal surveys conducted by students are:
- Cited in-text only.
- Not published works, so they are not included on the References page.
Example of an in-text citation of a survey you conducted:
- First and Middle Initials Last Name (Survey, Date, Year)
- Example: According to the student survey conducted by M.A. Jewell (Survey, Date, Year) ...
If the survey is a professional survey from the internet:
- Cite it as a website.
- Visit the APA Help guide.
- Click on References and In-text Citation Examples.
- See WEBSITES.
