apa citation generation machine
Formatted citations created by a generator can be copied into the bibliography of an academic paper as a way to give credit to the sources referenced in the main body of the paper.

You fill in the forms with information about a source, such as the author(s), title, and publication date. The tool then creates an accurate reference and in-text citation that you can use to give credit to the original author.

Along with specifications for in-text and reference page citations, APA style also has guidelines to follow when formatting the rest of your paper. When following these guidelines, you must pay attention to presentation details such as font type, line spacing, margins and page headers to ensure your work is easily legible.
- 1 inch margins on all sides
- Use Times New Roman, 12 pt. size
- Double-space the entirety of the paper
- APA headings must include page numbers, aligned to the right
- Title of the paper in all capitals, 50 characters or less, in the header on each page of the body (the ‘running head’), aligned to the left
- For students, the paper should typically include three major sections – Title Page, Main Body and References.
- An APA cover page, also known as an APA title page, should include the following elements: the running head, page number, paper title, author name, and the institutional affiliation.
- If infographics (tables, charts) were used in the narrative you should also add Appendices as a separate section at the end of the paper.
- An APA sample paper may have an APA format title page that also includes an author’s note, but this is usually optional and not considered a requirement.
