Q. Is there an APA format for PowerPoint presentations?


PowerPoint APA guidelines:

  • APA format applies to any citations used in the PowerPoint.
  • In other words, use the necessary in-text citations on the slides to cite your sources. 
  • Create a References Page slide at the end of the slide show.

There is no set APA format for font, size or spacing for PowerPoint presentations, since it is not a research paper.

To see how to cite sources used in the PowerPoint slides:

  • Visit the APA Help guide.
  • Click on References and In-text Citation Examples.
