Here are a couple of examples for how to cite some non-typical sources in APA 6th format:

Websites and webpages (Yes, there is a distinction)

Template

Reference list: Author, A. (date). Title of document [Format description if necessary]. Retrieved from http://URL

In text: (Surname, date)

Example

In text citation: (Lee, 2010) or Lee (2010)

Powerpoint presentations

Template

Reference list: Author, A. (date). Title of document [Format type]. Retrieved from http://URL

In text: (Surname, date)

In text citation: (Doe, 2016) or Doe (2016)

Quality Standards and Guidelines

Template:

In text: (Organization That Made the Standard, year).

Example

In text, first citation: (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence [NICE], 2013) or National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE, 2013).

In text, subsequent citations: (NICE, 2013) or NICE (2013).
