Citing PDA sources in APA?

    I'm writing a paper and wondering if there's a way to do this. I'd like to reference Epocrates Essential (for the meds) and Taber's. Any ideas would be appreciated.:trout:

    I can't find my new APA manual, but I would assume you would treat it just like an internet site. In other words use the internet site where you downloaded it from. For other programs that you have CDs for they should be treated just like a book reference (Taber's should have a complete book reference), but you should really ask your instructor. Because no matter what anyone else tells you they won't be the one grading your paper.


    Hope this helps a little!

    I went to the "info" page on the PDA program itself and used my PDA reference as a journal article, which is what my instructor said to do. Now if that is right...I have no clue...but she said she would take it that way for her class.

    Definately do it the way your instructor said it would be proper for her grading, but here is how I reference it. This is a reference from my Drug Guide...
