All submissions to the STEM journal should conform to the requirements of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed.). The following are some important examples taken from the manual.


1. Text Citation


1) In-text citations

Materials (fewer than 40 works) directly quoted from the other author’s work should be enclosed by double quotation marks. Single quotation marks can be used for a keyword and other quoted materials in the double quotation marks. A period is placed after the reference citation in the text as shown in the example. The author’s last name, year of publication, and specific page numbers are placed in the parentheses.


Quotation 1) the case that the author is not named in the signal phrase

He stated, “The ‘placebo effect’ disappeared... when behaviors were studied in this manner” (Smith, 1982, p. 276).


Quotation 2) the case that the author is named in the signal phrase

Smith (1982) found that “the ‘placebo effect’ disappeared when [his own and other’s] behaviors were studied in this manner” (p. 276).


2) If the manuscript is written in English, the last names of two authors are linked with “and” in the text and “&” will be used for the citation in the parentheses. In the case that it is written in Korean, use “Gwa/Wa” for in-text citation, followed by the parentheses without a space.

Gardner and Lambert (1976) found that their previous study (Lambert & Gardner, 1972) could not .... 


3) One Work by More Than Two Authors and Fewer Than Six Authors: Cite all authors the first time the reference occurs; in subsequent citations include only the surname of the first author followed by “et al.” and the year.


First citation:  William, Jones, Smith, Bradner, and Torrington (1983) found that .... 

Second citation: William et al. (1983) studied the effect of ...


4) One Work by More Than Six Authors: Cite only the surname of the first author followed by “et al.” and the year in the first and subsequent citations. However, in the reference list, the surnames of all six or more authors should be spelled out.


5) Works by different authors in the same citation follow their order in the reference list and the authors are separated by a semicolon.


Oxford (1986, 1989, 1994) reported that many studies (Gosden, 1992; Hanania & Akhtar, 1985; Hopkins, 1987, 1988a, 1989; Tarone et al., 1981) used strategy training...


6) Audiovisual Media Citation

In the text citation of the audiovisual media, cite the title of the media (in italics), the producer(s) or director(s), the year the reference first occurs; and in subsequent citations include only the title of the audiovisual media.


First citation: the movie Love Actually (Curtis, 2003) to ….

Second citation: Love Actually is a….


2. Reference List

References cited in the manuscript must appear in the reference list, meaning that each entry in the reference list must be cited in the manuscript. In the case of a manuscript written in Korean and cited from Korean sources, Korean references should be listed first in Korean alphabetically before English references. Korean references also should follow the APA style. When the manuscript written in English has Korean sources, give the original title followed by the Yale Romanization system and place its translation in brackets. (When referring to an article previously published in the STEM journal, use the English title in the abstract.)
