2.5. The APA Referencing Style

The APA style, created by the American Psychological Association, is used by writers around the world for writing and publishing in the Social and Behavioural Sciences. APA is an author-date style similar to the Harvard style, but with its own characteristics in terms of formatting, spelling, construction of tables and graphs. It can also contain footnotes which allows authors to include additional information.

APA is a style used in academia  across various disciplines as well as in many scientific journals, and therefore it might appeal not only to students and researchers in the Psychological-Medical field, but also to students of Social Sciences/Politics.
