Use these guidelines if you have created a table or figure yourself (e.g. a table or graph made up of data you collected in an experiment, a photograph that you have taken, etc.). If you have adapted a table or figure from another source, you should use the Table or figure from another source guidance instead.
If you have copied or adapted a table or figure from another source, or if you have taken information from another source and put it into a table/figure yourself, you must include an in-text citation in your notes section underneath the table or figure.

In APA referencing, tables and figures use in-text citations and notes. This is called a copyright attribution You also need to include an entry in your list of references - this should be formatted normally for the source.

If you are planning on publishing your work, you must seek further guidance about copyright before publication.
