YouTube Video: Basic APA Format

The basic format for citing a YouTube video is:

Author, A.A. [Screen name]. (year, month day). Title of video [Video file]. Retrieved from http://xxxxx

  • If the user’s real name is not available, include only the screen name, without brackets
  • The capitalization [or lack thereof] in the screen name is in keeping with how it appears online.
  • In text, cite by the author name that appears outside of brackets, whichever one that may be.
