Hello,

I was wondering if I could be given an in-text and end-text reference on
the Windows 64 SPSS version.

I'd like to reference this program in my assignment in APA format however
I'm not 100% sure if I have been entering it correctly.

If unsure on the APA format below is a sample of in-text and end-text:

In-text:

(Borenstein, Hedges, Higgins, & Rothstein, 2005)

End-text:

Rightsholder, A. A. (year). Title of Software or Program (Version number)
[Description of form]. Retrieved from http://xxxxx

Kind Regards,

Edita

According to this blog posting:
http://blog.apastyle.org/apastyle/2015/01/how-to-cite-software-in-apa-style.html

The reference would be something like:

GNU PSPP version 0.10.2-g654fff [Computer Software.] (2017). Retrieved
from http://pspp.awardspace.com.

Assuming you were using version 0.10.2-g654fff (which you can check in
Help > About) and that you retrieved the software from awardspace.com
this year. In the text you would cite this like "... used GNU PSPP
(2017)..." or "All analyses were conducted using PSPP (GNU PSPP, 2017)."

It's not perfectly clear to me whether you should call the software "GNU
PSPP" or just "PSPP". The manual is titled "PSPP" but at the bottom of
the first node (after the TOC), it says "This manual is for GNU
PSPP..." I think the developers would prefer that "GNU" be included.
