Category: Dissertation/ThesisCitation of Unpublished Manuscript

Can i cite unpublished manuscripts in APA format. If yes, is there any specific APA format for referencing unpublished manuscript?
Let me tell you why i am asking this, i want to site one paper which is not officially published in any journal as of now. The publication of that paper is still under process.
So please help me and suggest me some good ideas.

I don’t think it’s legal to add such references. I discussed your problem with one of my friends and he has same opinion. So don’t take a risk by adding such references.
