Q. How do I cite an interview in APA style?


An interview that you conducted should be cited in text using the name of the person interviewed and as specific a date as possible:

(B. A. Barakas, personal communication, December 13, 2009)

Such an interview is not included in your reference list, since there is no recoverable information.

An interview that you did not conduct is dealt with based on how it is published.  If it is published in a magazine, it is treated as a magazine article.  If it part of a podcast, it is treated as a podcast.

For more on interviews, see this entry from the APA Style Blog.

For more on citing sources, see our Citation guide.
