What is APA Style?

APA Style is a standardized format for writing that has been established by the American Psychological Association. It is generally used by students and scholars working within a behavioral science discipline.

Keep in mind that APA Style refers to:

  • the format & structure of your paper.
  • how you cite other authors within the body of your paper.
  • how you compile a references page at the end of your paper.
