Note: This is an answer only for citing appendices you create in the body of your paperIf you are looking for information on how to cite sources within your appendix, please follow this link.

Example in-text citation:

Inner city mental health care access continues to be a problem (see Appendix for a table showing mental health care access by city).

Explanation and details:

You should use parenthetical in-text citations, similar to the ones used for your other references. In the example included in the Manual it also includes brief explanatory text for why the reader should consult the appendix.

If you have only one appendix title it Appendix with a centered heading starting on its own page. If you have more than one appendix use letters to differentiate them: A, B, C, etc. Be sure to include the letters in your in-text citations when you have more than one appendix so the reader knows which appendix to consult.

Details on citing appendices can be found on page 39 of the APA Manual.
