APA Style Guide 

APA Citation Basics

APA Style®  refers to a set of rules and guidelines found in the seventh edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association.  The rules determine how you cite references, punctuation, title page format, and so on.  You may be required to use APA Style when completing assignments.

An APA paper must have these components

  • Typed, double-spaced on letter-sized paper (8.5" x 11")
  • 1" margins on all sides
  • Use a clear font that is highly readable, such as 12 pt. Times New Roman and double spaced
