How to Cite Sources

Your method for citing sources in your research will depend on the writing style your school or program uses. The APUS Library has provided a list of the citation style used for all university programs here:

Citing Images

The style in which you caption your images is also determined by the style guide used by your school or program. It is important to always cite the source from which you obtained an image, even if that image is in the Public Domain or Creative Commons realm.

Citing the images used in your course materials not only ensures that you avoid issues of plagiarism, it also ensures that APUS copyright staff will be able to determine the copyright status of those images, and pursue rights if necessary.
