According to the 7th edition of the APA manual:

An interview is not considered recoverable data, so no reference to this is provided in the reference list. You may, however, cite the interview within the text as a personal communication.


  • (J. Smith, personal communication, August 15, 2009)
  • J. Smith (personal communication, August 15, 2009)
