Q. How do I cite a case study I read in APA?


To cite a case study in APA:

  • Cite where you found the case study (article, journal, website, etc.)
  • Visit the APA Help page for examples.
  • Click on References & In-Text Citation Examples.
  • There is not a special APA style for citing a case study beyond where you found it.
