How to Cite an Oral Interview for an Annotated Bibliography

Please note that the following example of a References list citation* for an oral interview in an Annotated Bibliography is for this class assignment only; it is NOT standard APA practice to include an oral interview--considered a personal communication--in the Reference list , only an in-text citation in the body of your paper (see page 179 of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association for the traditional APA treatment of this kind of source).

Source:  An oral interview with T. K. Lutes conducted on April 18, 2001:

  • In-text citation (in the body of your paper):  (T. K. Lutes, personal communication, April 28, 2001)
  • *References list citation:  Lutes, T. K. (2001, April 18). Personal communication [Oral interview].
