Q. I have an APA question. I have to put the title of a journal article and of a book. Are each italicized or in quotes?
For APA Style, on the References page:
- The title of a book is in italics.
- The title of a journal is in italics.
- The title of a journal article is not in italics or in quotation marks.
See the APA Help Guide for examples. Click on References and In-text Citation Examples.
In the body of your paper:
- The name of a journal/magazine article should be in quotation marks.
- The title of a book or journal/magazine should be in italics.
