Citation Style: APA: Help

What is APA style and why is it important?


ASAP follows the publication style of the American Psychological Association (APA).

APA style covers not only the format of the citations, but also the format of your research papers. Paper format covers such things as double spacing, margins, and page numbering. APA style provides a standard, consistent system for giving credit to others for their ideas. Following APA format helps you to prevent plagiarism in your research papers.

This libguide will point you to websites that will help you with formating your papers and your citations.

The definitive publication for APA style is the 6th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association.
