Q. Is there an APA format for PowerPoint presentations?


PowerPoint APA guidelines:

  • APA format applies to any citations used in the PowerPoint.
  • In other words, use the necessary in-text citations on the slides. 
  • Create a References slide at the end. 

There is no set APA format for PowerPoint presentations like there is for Word documents (one-inch margins, Times New Roman, 12-point font, etc.).

To see how to cite sources used in the PowerPoint:

  • Visit the APA Help guide.
  • Click on References and In-text Citations Examples.
