Cite Easily with EasyBib’s APA Citation Template


Without a doubt, one of the biggest stressors to finishing up a research project is making sure that references are structured properly and other authors are responsibly credited for their work. At, we strive to make that process easier for you. Today, we’re back with another snazzy, helpful template, similar to the MLA template we posted previously. That one was designed to help students and scholars when developing their MLA style citations (Shout out to those of you who took the time to send us a thank you for posting that resource!) With tons of shares over social media and downloads galore, we heard you—you want more. So we’re back to bring you our newest resource—an APA Citation Template!

Our latest template is filled with six of the most commonly used sources and their APA reference structures. If you’re using a book, e-book, website, online video, online journal article, or digital photograph, we have the proper arrangement displayed on our template. Look at the information found on the source you’re attempting to cite and use the template to put the elements in their proper configuration. Take notice of the punctuation, italics, and brackets on the template as well. We’ve included everything you need to produce stellar references that follow the most current edition of the American Psychological Association’s Publication Manual.

Bookmark our template for easy reference, print it out, share it with others, or, better yet, add the link to your classroom blog or website. Refer to our template when you’re working on your references or use it to check for accuracy before submission. Stress less about developing your references and focus more on your writing! As always, we’ve got your back for that.

For even more peace of mind, run your paper through our spiffy grammar and plagiarism checker. Receive instant feedback on your grammar, view potential plagiarism red flags, and easily modify your references. Get started today and submit your papers with confidence!
