How to reference with APA

Citing images, artwork

  • Images in text are also generally accompanied by a caption that includes copyright information and a statement of permission for use. Please check with your tutor to see if this is necessary.
  • When artists assign titles they are italicised. Do not italicise titles that other people have assigned to the work.
