What is APA Style?

APA guidelines help you:

  • format and structure your findings in your paper
  • cite other authors within the body of your paper
  • compile a references page at the end of your paper

Important Websites

Purdue OWL (Online Writing Center) - APA Guidelines- This site contains all the examples and formatting guidelines you find in the print manual in a browsable website put together by the Purdue Writing Lab staff. 

APA Style Blog - Written and maintained by APA staff, the contributors to the blog answer questions about formatting uncommon resources in APA style. For example, the entry on How to Cite Something You Found on a Website in APA Style, is very useful.

Plagiarism is the act of taking the words, ideas, data, illustrations, or statements of another person or source, and presenting them as one's own.

  • Use quotation marks around the words and cite the source, or
  • Paraphrase or summarize acceptably and cite the source.

If you use charts, graphs, data sets, or numerical information obtained from another person or from published material, you must also cite the source. (MIT A Handbook for Students)
