American Psychological Association (APA) style, most commonly used in the social sciences, is a specific formatting style that students and scholars use to write papers and cite cources. Information here is taken from the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed.) which may be consulted for questions not addressed here. Purdue University's Online Writing Lab (OWL) is also an excellent resource.
For more help with APA style please Ask Us or visit the Research Help desk to meet with a librarian.
