The APA style was created in 1929 by the American Psychological Association to create simple and clear rules for the execution of scientific publications.
The rules for designing APA links are based on the author’s system year, for example, the text indicates the name of the author and the date of creation of the source: (Rogalevitš 2017).
The reference should be indicated for each paragraph or sentence that is not written by the author of the work or in the wording of which the thoughts and ideas of other people have been used. For a paragraph at the end of the sentence, a link is added depending on the wording of the text.
According to scientists, appraisers are not interested in content – they are more focused on indicators (Usual, 2013).
Usual (2013) writes that according to scientists …
In 2013, Usual wrote that …
In the case of a quote, you must specify the page number from which the quotation is taken. The name is indicated after the year and is separated by a colon:
Ustav (2013: 15) writes that “…..”.
If numbered links are used, it is easier to refer to the text: in 2013, Usustal wrote this … . Or along with the page number: In 2013, Usustal wrote that … [1.15].
There is no difference from where the quotation is taken, from paper sources or from the Internet – this should be referenced in any case! If you used a web page, the author and year (date of update or review) should also be specified.
If the author is not listed in the source, then you must enter the name and year. The source should be well-studied, and the author may specify the organization or owner of the web page.
Specify the page numbers if you are using a direct quote. In some cases, you need to provide a page number to explain where you got the information from. You must specify the page number for a direct quote. Always indicate the page number at the end of the sentence, even if you specify the author’s surname and date of publication.
