Creating Generic Citations

The following tutorials were created by Nova Southeastern University. 
These tutorials discuss the creation of a "Frankenreference".  The APA manual does not provide examples of every type of resource that can be cited.  Instead, it is up to authors to use the basic rules set by the APA to create their own citations for sources.  These tutorials go through the basic rules that apply to Who created the resource, When it was created, What is the resource, and Where the resource was produced.  Authors can then use these basic rules to create a reference citation for a source that may not have a perfect match in the manual.

Correction!!!  In the first tutorial there is a mistake concerning running headers.  The phrase Running head: and the TITLE must appear on the top left of the first page of your paper.  On all additional pages include the TITLE on the top left corner but not the phrase Running head:.  Click here for an example.
