APA requires all reproduced images (including tables) to be accompanied by an APA style copyright permission statement and a reference list entry (Lee, 2016). The copyright permission statement takes the form of a note that's included directly after the table. This will need to be typed in manually, following the examples in section 2.7.12 in the APA Referencing Guidelines.

As Mendeley can only generate a reference list entry from an in-text citation, you will need to add this in a different way. Find you reference in Mendeley Desktop and right click - select Copy As - Formatted Citation (CTRL+Shift+C). Go back to your reference list and paste this in.

However, if your table consists of multiple sources, it may be more appropriate to include in-text citations instead of copyright permission statements. Please see this LibANSWER for more information:
