APA intro

The current American Psychological Association (APA) style manual is the 6th edition (2010).

APA style is most commonly used in Psychology, Education & the Social Sciences.

A copy of the APA style manual is available in the Ready Reference area at the Research Help Desk on the first floor of SU Library (in GAC):

American Psychological Association. (2010).Publication manual of the American Psychological Association. Washington, DC: American Psychological Association. 
Call Number: Ref. BF76.7 .P83 2010 c.2


Below you will find a list of resources on APA style. I show many of these in my face-to-face classes as the tutorials are extremely comprehensive. Remember, you can always set up an appointment with me if you need help.

Don't forget, any one of the librarians at the Research Help Desk can also help you with your APA style questions.
