Let’s be honest: the worst part of any academic project is citing your sources, and with so many rotating paper formats, most of us leave writing citations to the last minute. We’ve got you covered. Below are the appropriate guidelines for citing Qualtrics in an academic research paper, APA.

General Citation Guidelines

  • Company Name: Qualtrics
  • Development Company: Qualtrics
  • First release: 2005
  • Copyright Year (current year): 2018
  • Location: Provo, Utah, USA
  • Version: Because the version changes weekly, we prefer that you cite the current Month(s) and year(s) of use.
    • If your program is insistent on recording the actual version number, it can be found next to the copyright notice when you log in.
  • Available at: https://www.qualtrics.com

General In-Text Citation

We find the best approach for citing Qualtrics in-text is to put the company name and location in parentheses (Qualtrics, Provo, UT). This functions similar to how you would document a vendor of laboratory supplies (since we’re also a vendor of sorts, as we vend data).
