APA is a style of writing or academician to write their document in books articles and journal. APS is citing sources in the field of social and behavioral sciences. It is a described guide style of APA titled Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. It is widely used in different fields. In this post, today I’m going to describe how to cite a powerpoint APA cite. If you are writing any journal, article, book and any document you should follow the APA style. It means that when you using others ideas and information you should acknowledge them. The only content which you do not need acknowledge is common knowledge. In the same way, if you are preparing a powerpoint slide, you are using an external source of data and information then you should follow the APA. It reflects your standard presentation.

Your Slides can also contain paragraph, table, and chart. Citation rules apply to the presentation just as they do to papers. When using or referencing another author’s ideas, you must cite that source. When incorporating a citation in a slide, do so just as you would in the traditional paper (Lowe, 2016). According to Jones (2007), Presentations aren’t different form of papers.

Use APA style rules to format any tables and figures(images) in your presentation

It is important to use appropriate citation when including a figure from another source in your presentation. eg

Figure1. Bar graph showing useful information. From “Utilizing barographs,” by A. Jones, 2011, Journal of Handy Graphs, 76(2), p.3. Reprinted with permission.

Always include a reference list in the presentation. The reference always at the end of your presentation, just like you would in a paper. Reference list entries take the same format they would in a paper.
