(Lexicomp Online, 2015)

The Nursing department would like students to use a simplified Lexicomp citation without the drug name.  This will avoid overly voluminous reference pages.  If necessary they can check students work based on the above citation along with the retrieval date.

The online edition of the DSM-5 gives the DOI in the publisher position.  There is no DOI for the entire DSM-5.  Each chapter has been assigned its own DOI. (APA Style Blog, blog.apastyle.org/)

Course Packs, Basic Format

Author, A. A., & Author, B. B. (year of publication). Title of document. In A.

Instructor (Ed.), Course number: Course title (pp. xxx-xxx). Campus, BC:

Douglas College Bookstore. (Reprinted from Title of journal, volume

(issue), page numbers).

Course packs are collections of materials that instructors compile from many sources. Treat the items in your course pack like articles or chapters in an edited book that are reprinted from another source. Use the name of the instructor as the editor. If the instructor's name is not given, use the department as editor. Use the bookstore as the publisher and the date the course pack was issued as the date of publication. If there is no date of issue, use the current semester and year for the date of publication.

Note- The APA manual does not provide instructions on how to cite course packs.  The above is just one possible format to follow.  You need to use your own judgment.  We suggest that you check with your instructor first.
