  • Bibliography:’s APA Citation Generator

APA is one of the most common citation style formats. It was developed by the American Psychological Association as a standard method for citing resources and references in academic works. Originally, it was for works in the field of psychology, but over the years, has become a common required style for other fields of study too. The NASW (National Association of Social Workers), for example, recommends the APA style for its academic works.

The APA publishes a style guide and does revise it periodically.

The guide covers the following:

  • Format for title pages, headings and pagination

  • Margin measurements

  • Paragraph indentions

  • Intext citations

  • End-of-text citations (bibliography)

Examples of all formatting requirements are also provided.

The guide is a complex piece.

Enter Purdue Owl

To try to simplify things for students, the website, Purdue Owl, was created. It monitors all changes the APA makes, simplifies explanations for students, and also gives example of every type of resource a student/educator/professional might use. Still, the student must access the site, take notes, and then create his own APA citation for each resource, within the text and on the bibliography.


Stop all of that tedious work. Now you have an APA citation resource that does it all for you. Here is what you will find:

  • A short simple guide for formatting your writing (margins, title, page, etc.)

  • A killer APA citation maker that will automatically create your intext and end-of-text citations based on the information you provide in the form we provide.

  • It doesn’t matter how unique or rare the resource is – a song, the Bible, an un-authored piece of writing – our free APA citation machine will do it all. You may not know how to do it – you no longer have to. No more worry about parenthetical requirements – we got you covered; no more worry about how to cite a book or journal article with several authors – just fill in the form fields and have an auto-generated citation in seconds.

Here’s All You Do

  1. Make sure you have the right details

  2. Type them into the fields on the citation machine APA selection

  3. Click the “generate” button

  4. Voila – a perfect citation

Save them, convert them into Word, PDF or any other document type, alphabetize them, and print out. For internal citations, just cut and paste them in. This is about as easy as it gets.

The Bottom Line

There are plenty of online citation generators out there. Some are fee-based; some are free. But none will be as comprehensive as our website. From the remotest of songs to the 1935 movie, to an obscure original document, you will get exactly the right citation format.

Try it right now. You will never manually create a citation again.
