CMNS 112 APA Citation Style

What the Heck is APA?

Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (also known as APA Style) is a writing style and format used to write/publish journal articles and books.

It is used not only by psychologists but also by students and researchers in education, social work, nursing, business, and many other disciplines.

Scholarly journals and books (and some web pages) are the repositories of the accumulated knowledge of academic disciplines.  Scholarly journals are aggregated together in research databases, that can be searched via the Library's main search engine OCtopos.

Today's session focus is on how APA Style is used to credit the sources you will be using in your research papers. Information on citing your sources are in Chapters 6  Crediting Sources & 7 Reference Example of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association 6th Edition.
