The APA style is a comprehensive guide to writing scientific papers. APA stands for the American Psychological Association, but the guidelines are also applied in other fields. APA Style provides a foundation for effective scholarly communication that helps writers present their ideas in a clear, precise, and inclusive manner.
This guide provides examples for the general format of APA research papers, including paper format, in-text citations, endnotes/footnotes, and the reference page. For more detailed information, please refer to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, (7th ed.).
