APA Writing Style

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
