Citing and referencing in APA style


What is apa

What is APA?

  • American Psychological Association

    • Oversees publication of books and journals

    • Provides a standard editorial style for manuscripts

  • “Without APA style conventions, the time and effort required to review and edit manuscripts would prohibit timely and cost-effective publication and would make clear communication harder to achieve” (APA, 2001, pp. xxi).


Apa style language

APA Style: Language

Language in an APA paper is:

clear: be specific in descriptions and explanations

concise: condense information when you can

plain: use simple, descriptive adjectives and minimize figurative language


Citations

TONE

  • Scientific, not literary, writing

  • Be clear, concise, and formal

  • No long-winded sentences loaded with descriptive words

    • Example:

      • Sally Richards is an unfortunate person afflicted with bipolar disorder. Her emotions are like a rollercoaster, sometimes she’s really happy and sometimes she’s down in the dumps.

      • Sally Richards is diagnosed with bipolar disorder, a disorder characterized by dramatic mood swings.
