BOS 345: Consumer Psychology


The American Psychological Association (APA) citation and format style is commonly used to cite sources in the natural and social sciences.

For more information on APA style and examples of citations, visit the Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) website and navigate using the left-hand side menu. Fairfield University also has a helpful guide to APA citation found here: https://librarybestbets.fairfield.edu/citationguides/apa

The College Library also provides direct access to the APA Online Handbook

Citation Management Tools

Citation Management Tools, like Zotero and Mendeley, can help you stay organized when researching by gathering and organizing citation info for your sources. 

There are pros and cons to each tool, but we recommend starting with Zotero, since it's a open-source tool that you can take with you after you leave F&M. For more information on Zotero & Mendeley, visit the links below.
