Q. I'm not sure how to cite my source for a figure in my appendix (APA 6th edition). I'm also wondering if my caption should appear above or below.
To cite a source for a figure:
- The caption should appear directly below the figure.
- It should contain information about the source in the format below (from APA Manual 6th Edition).
Example - Figure from book:
- The figure caption contains a complete citation, but in a different format than on the reference page.
- Note the last statement, which is used only if your paper will be published.
