APA style refers to the rules set down by the American Psychological Association for how research articles submitted to its publications should be written and formatted. Many colleges and universities require students to use APA style for research papers, especially in social and behavioral sciences. It is one of two styles used in academic classes at COA.
The official rulebook for APA style is the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th Edition, which is available in a print edition for use at either COA library. Other resources that discuss APA style are available on the web. Below are some of the best links to us
