Not only do you need to cite your sources, but you need to format them according to a particular style. Your instructor will often ask you to use a certain style in your paper. For this course, you will use APA (American Psychological Association) format.
There are many different ways (or "styles") in which to cite the sources you used to find information. For this assignment you will be using APA style, which is outlined below.
Journal article (one author):
Author, A.A (date). Article title. Journal title, volume(issue), pages. DOI:(if available)
Example: Neumann, D.A. (2012). The convex-concave rules of arthrokinematics: flawed or perhaps just misinterpreted? Journal of Orthopaedic and Sports Physical Therapy, 42(2), 53-55. DOI: 10.2519/jospt.2012.0103.
Journal article (two authors):
Author1, A.A., & Author2, B.B. (date). Article title. Journal title, volume(issue), pages. DOI:(if available)
