APA style is a commonly used writing style for formatting papers in many disciplines. Using a standardized format provides both the reader and writer with a common understanding of the layout of a paper and how to find cited sources.
It is helpful for students to consider APA style in 3 parts:
Formatting: the layout of a paper
In-text Citations: briefly citing sources in paragraphs
Reference List: full citation information at the end of a paper
