These should be listed following the APA Publication Manual, 6th Edition. You need to ensure that you are using scholarly, peer-reviewed journals for you reference list. You need to visit the section of Webliography that covers the differentiation of peer reviewed/scholarly journals from other sources. Be sure to include journals that present multiple sides of the questions, both pro and con. You should plan on having three to four pages of journals in your bibliography. These will be graded on your adherence to APA Style, utilization of peer-reviewed journals, and the adequacy with which they fairly represent the views on the subject.

If you use the Library databases, you can usually check a box in the search criteria to get scholarly results. You can also check the information on the journal to see if it is a scholarly journal, a trade journal, or a popular press publication. You may use up to 10% from non-scholarly sources. Books are not considered to be scholarly sources for this class. It is not that they are not important sources, but they don't usually go through the peer review process and are generally based on older information.
