APA formatting question

I have to do a power point presentation (scientific advancement in medicine - vaccines and so on. It's super cool. I love this class) but it needs to have APA citations and I worry about in text citations being messy. Can I do like I see a lot of these papers do and use the little numbers with the citations at the bottom and a final slide with the references on them? Is that considered APA if I do it in the right format?

If so, how do I make the little numbers in the Open Office version of the program?

An amazing charity

No you cannot use footnotes to replace in-text citations. I don't think you will have much trouble with the in-text as it is just (Author, Year) or (Year). If you are worried about the References list, just add a text box on the last slide and do the formatting the same was you would in Word.

Don't forget - if you are using photos that are not from the Microsoft Clip Art library, you need to cite the references for the pictures/graphics!

Fuck All Y'All Bitches in 2012... and 2013 and probably in 2014 too!

Thanks Octy. How do I cite the graphics? Just at the end?
