The links below will provide you examples of all you need to formulate your own APA citations. I've provide some examples to the more common questions I've received.
Periodicals: something that is published more than once.
Journal article: usually a scholarly work such as the Journal of Social Work (citation example below - note the indentation is incorrect for APA, the first line should NOT be indented).
