I'm writing a report and I've used a website for some of my research. I haven't directly quoted anything from the website but you can tell that's where I got my information from if you know what I mean.

I'm required to use APA 6th referencing.


The answer to the question, "should I reference X?", is almost always yes. It is proper to reference sources used in your research even if you don't use direct quotes and regardless of referencing style.

  • Thank you I just wanted to know. Should I do it at the end of the paragraph? – EJHall Apr 23 '16 at 20:41
  • Yes. You should use an in-text citation (in addition to a full reference at the end of the paper) after a paragraph that contains information from the cited source. – Mekki MacAulay Apr 23 '16 at 21:50
