How to Cite Magazine Using APA Referencing System

How to Cite Magazine – popular, trade, general interest. The American Psychological Association (APA) Referencing System. The APA (American Psychological Association) style requires two elements: in-text citations throughout your assignment, and a reference list at the end.
At the end of the text, include a list of References, a single list of all the sources of information you have cited in your assignment. Begin the reference list on a new page and title it “References”. Centre the title on the page. Each entry should have a hanging indent.

Each list item requires specific bibliographic information. For example, in the case of a book, ‘bibliographical details’ refers to: author/editor, year of publication, title, edition, place of publication and publisher, as found in the title pages (some details will vary)
Include information about a source within the text of your assignment:
  • the name of the author or authors
  • the year of publication
  • the page number (see below for further information)
Citations may be placed at the end of a sentence (before the concluding punctuation) in brackets
