Q. Is there an APA format for PowerPoint presentations?


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.).

However, APA format does apply to any citations you may use in the PowerPoint, using the necessary in-text citations in the presentation and then creating a References slide, too. 

To see how to cite sources used in your PowerPoint, visit the References and In-text Citations on the APA Help guide.

Thank you for using Ask Us.  For further assistance, contact your campus librarians.
