APA - Referencing a Publication
Books, Articles, Essays, and Periodicals
Referencing a Publication or Media
First and foremost, to reference a work, you must do it in two ways:
- In-Text Citations:
for things like quoted verses and published material.
- Bibliographic Citations:
your bibliography or references list.
Publication with Web Material This is what a publication with accompanying web material reference
looks like, and for this one I will use a real reference, one of my favorite publications by D&D publishers Wizards of the Coast, who have an extensive online presence. I am citing in both In-Text the Draconomicon: The Book of Dragons
(Collins, A., Williams, S., & Wyatt, J., 2003), as well as the Bibliographic APA formats:
Collins, A., Williams, S., & Wyatt, J., (2003). Draconomicon: The Book of Dragons, From Dungeons & Dragons,
and Wizards of the Coast, Inc., P.O. Box 707, Renton, WA, 98057-0707. See also web media, Retrieved
November 21, 2006, from http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=products/dndacc/176680000
You'll notice two things about the reference above: it is about a real book, a real publication, and there is a lot of online artwork and information about it on the official website of D&D, and if you plan on using even a smidgen of those images on Elftown, you'd better damn well know how to say they're not yours.
