APA Style Reference format for YouTube videos and other electronic resources

Quick Answers References

Another valuable resource is the APA Style blog, which can be found at

There is a search box in the upper right hand corner (see the illustration below), and many more answers can be found there. For instance, when I typed “YouTube citation” into the search box, my results included advice on how to cite comments on a YouTube video, how to name an interview subject in a YouTube video, and how to properly cite a TedTalk.
