Although the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th edition provides no instructions on how to use APA in poster presentations, NACADA follows many of the same conventions that would apply to a manuscript:

  • Citations must be included every time a resource is quoted, summarized, or paraphrased.
  • While the complete citation list is included in the event handout, to save room on the poster/document/slide and avoid distracting from the point being made, enough information should be included on the poster/document/slide to ensure that the source is recognized and could be located if the recording of the event were to be separated from the handout.
  • Figures and tables must also be appropriately cited, and where copyright issues may be involved, appropriate permission must be received from the original source and noted.
