What is an ISBN?

An ISBN (International Standard Book Number) is a unique identifier assigned to books. It consists of thirteen digits and is used by publishers, booksellers, and libraries for cataloging and ordering purposes. ISBNs were introduced in 1970 and are generally found on the back cover, title page, or copyright page of a book.

What is a reference list in APA style?

APA is one of the most popular citation styles and was developed by the American Psychological Association to standardize scientific writing. The APA citation style includes short citations in-text and a reference list at the end of the document. In-text citations are required in the author-year format, e.g. (Rode, 2012). The reference list provides the information that a reader would need to identify and find each source that you have used. It generally includes four elements: author, date, title, and source. All the rules of the APA style can be found in the APA Manual, which is currently in its 7th edition.
