The accepted format for citing sources in the social sciences is the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. The School of Economics and Business Administration (SEBA) at Saint Mary’s College, too, emphasizes the use of APA in SEBA course work.
The APA Manual of Style, 7th edition is available for reference in the Library.
For quick help citing sources in the 7th edition, see the Library's APA Format Guide
You can also see format samples at websites like Purdue OWL and in the print copy of tha APA Manual of Style. Librarians can help you with this, as well.
