APA Guide - 6th Edition: Writing APA-Style Paper

Writing an APA-Style Paper - 6th Edition

Your professor has asked you to write an APA-style paper.

This means your paper needs to comply with a specific set of guidelines published by the American Psychological Association (APA).

APA guidelines tell you exactly how to cite your information sources and exactly how to format your paper. 

You can break down this process into three steps:

     Step 1: Create a APA References Page

     Step 2: Generate APA In-Text Citations

     Step 3: Format Your Paper in APA Style
