Identify the source from which you obtained this publication. This is called the "parent resource." Source resources include books, journals, the Internet, government documents, museums, laboratories, and interviews. Note the date on which you acquired the resource.

Cite the source using these terms: "Source: [location], date." or "Source: URL", where URL is the location of the resource on the Web.

In addition to giving an identification code, some databases are labeled A-Z or I-X. These labels are known as "subject headings" and they can be used to find articles again. For example, if you were to search for articles about animals in the Zoology database, you could use the subject heading "Zoology" as a way to find them again.

Some databases have a basic search page with simple entry fields for you to enter keywords. Others have more advanced search features that allow you to search by multiple sources of information within the database itself.

How do you in-text cite the UN in APA?

Italicize the document's title and separate it with a comma. The title in this situation would be "Charter of the United Nations." List the publishing date, followed by a comma. The date of publication in this case is October 24, 1945.

Include the name of the organization that published the work in the reference list. In this case, that would be "The United Nations." At least one author must be listed in the reference list for each work cited. Authors should be listed in order of appearance in the text.

Citing sources outside of the academic realm requires special handling because these references are not considered part of the main text. They are called endnotes and typically appear at the end of the paper or essay. Endnotes can also be included in an article if they provide additional information about the topic being discussed in the body of the paper. Endnotes are most commonly used as a means of referencing books and articles that are not readily available online. Examples include books from your school or local library that you want to refer to in your work.

In addition to the author's name, an endnote citation includes the title of the book, article, or other source, along with the date of publication. It is important to use the proper terminology when citing sources. Failure to do so results in an incomplete citation that makes it difficult for others to locate relevant information about your sources.
