    How to Cite an Unpublished Manuscript in APA? 

    Can you please tell me if there is any specific APA format for referencing unpublished manuscript? I want to cite a research paper of my senior which is not formally published in any journal till now. He has submitted it in ELK Asia Pacific Journal for a month now but the publication is still under process. So, is there any way by which I can cite it? Because it is unpublished, what would I fill out in the Year section?

    APA referencing for pamphlets 

    Anyone please tell me if pamphlets are referenced in the same way as a book is done? I googled it but so many example made me sick. All look same. Tell me if there is any difference is referencing of book and pamphlet in APA?

      No. there is no difference between the reference styles of both.
      I have asked the same question to my supervisor. She says book, brochure, and pamphlet can be referenced in same style because any pamphlet barely consist some useful information for PhD. I would say use the formatting style of book as it is while doing it for pamphlet.

      Mention in the brackets whether it is a pamphlet or brochure just after its title. And do not give spaces with brackets in APA.

      I did that with a brochure, I think, pamphlets can follow same format. I will show it to my supervisor next week. Check this link it might help you http://valenciacollege.edu/library/mla-apa-chicago-guides/documents/pamphletbrochurebulletinapa6.pdf

      HELP!! Forget about pamphlet’s format. First tell me how can I reference a You tube comment. I know it sounds dumb to do that. But I just found a conference video over there and some random person made a very logical comment about the issue discussed over there. Tell me how can I? Anyone?

      @brad grey You have to reference a You tube comment too? Anyhow, follow this link http://blog.apastyle.org/apastyle/2016/09/how-to-cite-a-youtube-comment.html It will clear all your doubts. It is similar that we do blog comments.

      I have seen a lot of people in doubt as you are. It’s not your fault well internet has got a lot of mess over. However, you can format your pamphlet in the following format.
      If it is in print
      Company Name (or Author’s). Year. Title of resource (pamphlet or brochure). Publisher city or State abbreviation. Country: publisher name
      If it is in digital form
      Company name. year.title of resource(pamphlet or brochure). Retrieved from http://xyz.abc
