What is a PubMed ID?

A PubMed ID or PMID is the PubMed Unique Identifier which is a 1 to 8 digit number assigned to all records in PubMed. In a PubMed record, the PMID number is located at the bottom left. Some citation styles include the PMID near the end.

What is a reference list in APA style?

The APA referencing style consists of a set of styling rules used by the American Psychological Association since 1929 to present written text clearly and consistently. APA style involves using a title page, sans serif or serif fonts, double spacing, one-inch margins, and page numbers. APA style also mandates placing in-text citations in author-year format e.g. (Abdullah, 2021), and a reference list starting on a new page. The most current version is the 7th edition of the APA Publication Manual.
