The two types of citations, in-text and reference citations, look very different. In-text citations include three items: the last name(s) of the author, the year the source was published, and the page or location of the information. Reference citations include more information such as the name of the author(s), the year the source was published, the title of the source, and the URL or page range.
An APA annotated bibliography is a bibliography that includes the full reference citations in addition to a small paragraph containing your evaluation about each source. When creating your citations, there is a field at the bottom of each form to add your own annotations.

These are treated like books if they are published, but like personal communication if they are your own notes or unpublished. Lecture notes are considered published if they have been copied and distributed in print or on the web with the instructor's permission.
When citing entire websites, it is sufficient to give the address of the site in the text only (. Comprehensive information about the University can be found at http://, or, the University of Southern Queensland website (http://) gives comprehensive information). Specific information from a site, or parts of a site, need to be cited as follows:
In text, use a few words of the title (in italics), or the whole title if it is short, in place of an author name in the citation: ( Psychological effects , 6999).
When paraphrasing or referring to an idea in another work, page or paragraph numbers are not required. But it can be helpful, for example when paraphrasing or referring to information or an idea that can be located on a particular page, quoting or referring to images, figures or data, or when a work is particularly long and page numbers might be useful for the reader.
