Though it’s hard to believe, we’re nearly half way through Summer A. In fact, some of you are already composing term papers and may have some pressing questions about APA. If you don’t have time to make it to the Writing Center, here are 3 places on the web that can provide some of the answers you need:
- The Writing Center’s APA Handout: Our APA handout aims to provide a quick reference of the key features of APA style and provides examples of the most common resources you may need cite.
- The APA website’s Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page: Because it’s updated more often than the style guide itself, this page offers the most up-to-date information about citation practices and APA style in general. This page also contains a set of easy-to-navigate examples of common references and includes information about citing Twitter, Facebook, and websites, even websites without authors.
- The OWL @ Purdue’s APA Style Guide: Need a thorough explanation of all things APA? Then this is your best bet. The OWL provides information about and examples of everything from title pages to in-text citations to reference pages.
