Q. I was wondering, what is the proper way to site an in class discussion using APA format?


APA 6th edition, Section 6.20 on Personal Communications recommends "non-recoverable" sources like phone calls and personal interviews not be included in the reference list. Cite personal communications in text only using initials, last name and the date.

Example (J.J. Smith, personal communication, May 11, 2011)
