As a personal interview is not published or “findable,” it should not be included in an APA reference list. Instead, a personal interview should be referenced as a parenthetical citation. For example: (J. Smith, personal communication, May 17, 2008).

The statement must be in your own words.
If you use any phrases that are in the original quote, place them in quotation marks.
Add a citation—even if a paraphrase is in your own words, it is still someone else's idea.
