  4. 4. A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO APA STYLE 3 The Body A Practical Guide to APA Style When the APA style was first conceived eighty years ago, the main purpose was to develop standards for the publication of articles but has over the years become a guide to all aspects of academic writing (American Psychological Association, 2009). “Although designed for those who intend to publish,” Houghton and Houghton (2007, p. xii) point out that, “numerous colleges and universities adhere to these stringent guidelines.” Learning to do APA style well Center the title Indent ¶s Use Times New Roman or Courier as font-- -size 12

  6. 6. In Text Citations--Ideas Whenever you get an idea from a source cite it using the author’s name and date of publication in parentheses at the end of the sentence or paragraph describing their idea. The period goes after the final parenthesis. Example: When the APA style was first conceived eighty years ago, the main purpose was to develop standards for the publication of articles in the fields of anthropology and psychology (American Psychological Association, 2009).
  7. 7. In Text Citations—Author in text If you refer to the author(s) in the text of your paper, cite the source simply with the date of publication in parentheses next to the author’s name. Example: According to Fox (2007), the internet has played a significant role in the increase of plagiarism in academia today.
  8. 8. In Text Citations— Short Direct Quote When you directly quote a source you need to add quotation marks around the words or sentence you copy. The final period, however, comes at the end of the final parenthesis of the citation. Example: “Although designed for those who intend to publish, numerous colleges and universities adhere to these stringent guidelines” (Houghton and Houghton, 2007, p. xii).
  9. 9. In Text Citations—Long Direct Quote When your direct quotation long than longer than 40 words put it in and indented paragraph without quotation marks. Now the final period comes before the citation --- it seems this rule is designed just to frustrate you! Example: APA format. The running head often causes confusion: The running head is a shortened form of the title of your paper that appears in uppercase letters at the top left of each page of your manuscript. It helps to identify the pages of your paper and keep them together….On the title page of your manuscript, the label “Running head:” precedes the running head itself. (Hume-Pratuch, 2012, para.2-3) When quoting from a webpage, determine the paragraph # quoted and use that instead of a page #
