  • To provide a consistent format across a discipline
  • To allow for readers to easily cross reference your work
  • To lend credibility to your writing
  • To protect yourself from plagiarism
slide6
If we get all the correct information in there, why can’t we just cite our references any old way we choose?

It savesyou, the researcher, time and toil when the writer uses convention in the citation process.

slide7

Research:

Proper APA formatting helps a researcher(you)follow the thread of an idea back to it’s source.

The references at the end of the material you are using can provide great leads to other source material.

Shouldn’t we pay it forward?

The penalties for plagiarism can be severe but so can the consequences for the victim.

That’s Great . . .

so where do I start?

slide11
Now that you know why APA or another approved style of citation is required when doing research and other writings in academia . . .

Let’s talk about thehow.

there are 4 main parts in an apa paper
There are 4 main parts in an APA paper
  • Title page
  • Abstract / Author’s Note
  • Main Body
  • References
cover sheet
Cover Sheet

The cover sheet and the title page are not the same thing.

A separate title page should be placed after the cover sheet and before the body of the paper. Items included on the cover sheet vary as per instructor requirements (Stoner M., 2006).

page numbers running head
Page Numbers &Running Head

Do not put your name in the header.

Instead place it after the Main Title with any university affiliations.

The first numbered page is the title page (not the cover sheet) beginning with the number 1.

The short title you will be using throughout the paper must be less than 50 characters.

title page
Title Page

The “short title” that reflects the basic focus of the paper should be included in the upper left of the header in ALL CAPS, along with running page numbers in the upper right of the page. These items should be separated by at least 3-5 spaces.

This is also the page for an authors note if applicable.

new conventions
New conventions!
  • No underlining . . . Anywhere.
  • Use Italics to denote book, magazine, journal and dissertation titles both in the text and in references.

New conventions!

Punctuation Issues

  • Use one space after sentence ending punctuation in the body of the paper.
  • Use “single quotes for ‘quotes’ within a quote”.
  • Block quotes are indented from the body and do not require quotation marks but are to be included only if they are absolutely necessary.
  • Do not end a sentence with a URL unless it is enclosed in parenthesis.
slide19

Here are some common mistakes to avoid . . .

Don’t cite a source of one type as a source of a different type.

Know what material you are working with. This is especially true with sources that were retrieved from electronic databases. A book found online is not cited the same way as a paper copy.

reference page
Reference Page

Use a hard page break inserted at the end of the body of the paper to ensure that the reference page(s) begin on a new page.

  • (Incorrect) Joseph Robertshaw said in his Power Point presentation that double naming an author was not acceptable (Robertshaw, 2010).
  • (Parenthetical) Joseph Robertshaw said in his Power Point presentation that double naming an author was not acceptable (2010).

  • Elimination of gender and racial biases.
slide27
Gender and racial anonymity are now preferred. Use last names for in-text citations. Use initial of first names and last names for references rather than full names.

The ideas of

Steven Smith

Shirley Smith and

Shivani Smith

all deserve equal consideration based upon their work.
