Q. In references, when italicizing the title, what format is used for APA?


Italics are used in APA format, but what you will italicize depends on the type of resource you are citing.

  • For example, if you are citing a book, italicize the title of the book.
  • Consult the APA Help guide for examples.  
  • Click on References and In-text Citation Examples and then find the type of resource you are citing.

If you need further assistance, contact your Campus Library/ARC.
