How to Cite an Interview in APA

APA reference lists only include works that can be found by the reader. As a personal interview is not published or “findable,” it should not be included in an APA reference list. Instead, a personal interview should be referenced as a parenthetical citation. For example: (J. Smith, personal communication, May 17, 2008).

If you would like to include a personal interview as part of your APA reference list, then include the interviewee, the date of the interview, and the type of interview.

Structure:

Last name, FI. (Year, Month date). Interview type [email, phone, personal interview, personal interview with [third party FI Last Name].

Example:
Cloyd, A. (2014, July 29). Personal interview.
