Citation and Reference
The Journal of Population and Social Studies (JPSS) requires all manuscripts to use the American Psychological Association (APA) style for citations and references. The APA style is used widely in social science research papers. Given below are examples based on the APA style for the in-text citation and end-of-text references. They are meant to be a guideline for authors who may need them, therefore, the focus here is on key types of materials generally used in social science academic writings. For more details on the APA style, interested authors are recommended to consult the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th edition) and the APA Style Guide to Electronic References.
Software programs such as Endnote are useful for preparing citations and references in numerous styles including APA. Microsoft Word 2007 is also a convenient application with specific functions for preparing citations and references in the APA style.
