Frequently Asked Questions

How do I find an eBook Page Number?

There are many ways to find page numbers in eBooks due to the differing databases and publishers. Below are the most common ways of finding a page number but if these don't work please contact us. It may also be possible there is no way to find an eBook's page number in that case APA 7 recommends providing a heading/section name, a paragraph number, or both if that is appropriate (Section 8.28 in the APA 7 manual).
