APA Style is a set of rules for formatting research papers and citing any sources used in those papers.  Use the links below to find out how to set up your papers in APA Style.  The guides are using the latest APA Style 7th Edition rules created by the American Psychological Association.

Formatting a Paper in APA Style – This page will show you an example of how to format your paper in APA Style.  This includes how to format a cover page, where to place page numbers, where to put your name, and every other part of the paper.

Citing In-text in APA Style – This guide covers how to cite sources in-text throughout the body of a paper.  As you mention facts and ideas from all the sources you read as part of your research you need to cite them in your writing.

Reference Page Citations in APA Style – This page explains how to cite sources on the References page at the end of an APA paper.  These citations are more detailed than in-text citations.
