Comments and Response
In APA referencing style, the referencing of a book has the following
structure:
Last name of the author, initials of the other names. (Year). Title of
the book. City of publication: Publishers. In this case, the title of
the book needs to be italicized.
On the other hand, the referencing of a journal article is different
from that of a book or website, and has the following structure:
Last name of the author, initials of the other names. (Year, month and
date). Title of the article. Title of periodical, volume number (issue
number), pages. In this case, the title of the periodical is italicized.
The structure of referencing a website is also different from that of
referencing a book or a journal article. The structure of referencing a
website is as follows:
Last name of the author, initials of the other names. (Year, month and
date published). Title of the article. Website title. Retrieved month,
date, year, from URL. In this case, the website title is italicized.
Despite the differences in the structure for referencing the three
resources in APA that is, books, journal articles and websites, the APA
style have some basic format that must be followed, when referencing all
the resources. The last name of the author must come first, then
followed by the initials of other names of the author. In case there are
many authors, the format still holds the names of the authors will
follow each other, but must start with the surname then initials of
their first and other names. Another basic rule is that the date of
publication of a resource must follow after the names of author (s),
then the title of the resource should follow and must be italicized.
When referencing a book, website and a journal article in APA, there are
some differences that emerge. One of the differences is that, when
referencing a book, there is the inclusion of the city of publication
and the publishers, which is a requirement. However, this is not a major
requirement when referencing a website or a journal article. Another
difference that emerges in the three references is that the reference
for a website must include the date, when the website was visited and
the URL. Although this is a requirement for referencing a website, it is
not a requirement when referencing a book or a journal article. In
addition, when referencing a journal article, the page numbers are
usually included in the reference but this is not included, when
referencing a book or a website.
