APA referencing: Books

You need to include the following information:

Author. (Year). Book title. Place: Publisher.


Pashler, H. E. (2004). The psychology of attention. Cambridge, MA: MIT.

If there is more than one author, insert an & before the last author's name. If the book is in its second edition or beyond, you also need to include this information in the reference:

Seifert, K. L., Hoffnung, R. J., & Hoffnung, M. (2000). Lifespan development (2nd ed.). Boston: Houghton Mifflin. 

Tip: All the information you need to reference a book is usually on the title page. This is usually one of the first pages and has the copyright information on the back.
