APA Writing Style

This Research Guide has been created to help students use APA style in their writing.

Introduction to APA Writing

APA (American Psychological Association) style is commonly used in academic writing within the disciplines of science, psychology, nursing, and education.  The manual does not just provide information on how to cite sources, but also includes a stylistic writing component.  Consistency is important in academic writing.  This research guide will attempt to address some of the common errors writers make when trying to write in APA style.  

APA has just published the revised 7th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. Some of the 7th edition updates can be found in the "7th Edition Updates" tap on the left.
