The American Psychological Association (or APA for short) publishes The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, the most commonly used citation style within the social sciences. APA Style refers not only to how references should be cited, but also to how your paper should be formatted and other concepts related to writing a research paper.
The Library provides many sources to help you with APA Style, the largest of which is Academic Writer, a resource which has many different tools for researching, writing, and citing sources. The APA Manual of Style has sections incorporated into this program.
Getting Started With APA Style
Learn the basics of APA Style, including how to format a manuscript, understand the form and function of common manuscript parts, organize and express your thoughts clearly and precisely, employ the mechanics of style, use graphic elements effectively, credit sources and acknowledge the contributions of others, and construct a comprehensive and reliable reference list.
