APA 7th Citations for PowerPoint Presentations

The APA manual does not have a section on how to format a PowerPoint presentation.  The creator of this video contacted APA for advice on how to adapt the style guidelines for a slide presentation.   

  • Include the same information on your title slide that you would have on a title page. 
  • Include in-text citations for any quote, paraphrase, image, graph, table, data, audio or video file that you use within your presentation. 
  • The last slide will be your References List. 
  • “No citation, permission, or copyright attribution is necessary for clip art from programs like Microsoft Word or PowerPoint” (American Psychological Association [APA], 2020, p. 346).
