About Citing Audiovisual Media

Tip!

Use the following basic format when citing a video:

Example:
Author or Producer Last Name, First Name. (Year, Month Date). Title of the
     video [Video file]. Retrieved from http://-list the entire website-

For each type of source in this guide, both the general form and an example will be provided.

The following format will be used:

In-Text Citation (Paraphrase) - entry that appears in the body of your paper when you express the ideas of a researcher or author using your own words.  For more tips on paraphrasing check out The OWL at Purdue.

In-Text Citation (Quotation) - entry that appears in the body of your paper after a direct quote.

References - entry that appears at the end of your paper.

Information on citing and several of the examples were drawn from the APA Manual (6th ed.). 

Numbers in parentheses refer to specific pages in the manual.

Helpful Tip!

Is there a difference in citing a television series, news clib or YouTube video?

All Audiovisual media, whether it is a podcast, CD, news, YouTube video, television or film clip you should always provide the description in brackets [ ] to show the format in your citation.

Example: [Video file], [Television series episode], [Audio podcast], [CD].
