RefWorks: Selecting the Correct APA Style for References

RefWorks is a reference management application that allows you to organize your sources and create bibliographies for research projects.

To create a bibliography, check the box next to the sources you want to include. Then click the Create Bibliography button and select "Create Bibliography." Click on the drop down menu under "Bibliography from Selected references." Find the drop down menu that says "Institutional Styles." Select the one that says "(BYU Recommended) APA 7th - Sentence Casing, DOI:" You can click on the start next to the style so that it will appear in your favorites list later.
