Reference in APA 7

This guide provides formatting and presentation standards in APA 7 for ACAP students.

Reference Elements: Artwork & Images

Creator. (YEAR). Title in italics [Description]. Site or Institution Name, Location. https://xxxxx 

Clip Art, Stock Images: When using images that state “no attribution required” there is no need to provide a reference list entry, in-text citation, or copyright attribution statement. Works from MS Clip Art or sites like Unslpash and Pixabay can be used in this way.

Note. If unsure about the attribution requirements of an image, always cite using the format shown below.

Copyrighted Images: If using images that require attribution (e.g. a Creative Commons license) such as Flickr, add a reference list entry and the usual in-text citation as a note below the image. Use this method if you are unsure about the licensing or attribution requirements of the source.  

Artworks: Images sourced from galleries or museums can be cited in-text using conventional APA style.
