Output Style Instructions


QuikBib strives for accuracy in all output styles. We recommend verifying that there are no new style instructions before submitting your paper.  Always check your reference list for accuracy.


APA 5th Edition (www.apastyle.org)  



If no author present QuikBib will print the title. Author names should be formatted last name first followed by a comma, first name (or first initial followed by a period), and middle initial followed by a period. Each entry must be separated by a semi-colon.



Capitalize only the first word of the title and of the subtitle, if any, and any proper nouns.



Use full periodical names if present.


Volume and Issue:

If the periodical is paginated by issue, meaning that every issue of the volume begins with page 1, then include the issue. If the periodical has continuous pagination, meaning that each issue continues the pagination where the previous issue left off, include only the volume.


Internet articles based on a print source:

If you have viewed the article only in its electronic form, you should add brackets after the article title as follows: [Electronic version]
