The sixth edition APA style manual addresses appendices and supplemental materials in section 2.13 and on page 230, and details the following:
- The appendices follow the reference list.
- They are lettered A, B, C, and so forth.
- Figures and tables in the appendices are labeled A1, A2, B1, and so forth, according to the appendix in which they appear. (Note: Omit the letter if there is only one appendix.)
- A blank divider page is unnecessary between appendices unless it lends to readability or if a heading cannot be placed on the first page of an appendix. (Typically this could happen when you insert a scanned document that takes up an entire page.)
- The materials in the appendix must not extend beyond the margins of the rest of the paper: Reduce the appendix materials as needed.
As a general guide, appendices are appropriate for the following:
- List of stimulus materials
- Detailed description of complex piece of equipment
- List of articles that provided source data for a meta-analysis
- Detailed demographic description of subpopulations in the study. (APA, 2010, p. 39)
When citing an appendix one could use the following format:
Author. (year). Appendix A of Title of work. Location: Publisher.
