American Psychological Association (APA) citing style is Assiniboine's designated citing style. Some key points to keep in mind when citing in APA are:
The Publication Manual of the APA is the authoritative source on APA Style and the best place to look for information. For formats, guidelines and examples online, visit the Excelsior OWL APA Formatting & Style Guide.
Always check with your instructor for any specific citation requirements.
APA isn't the only citing style around. Remember that once you leave Assiniboine and enter the workforce or attend a different school, you may be asked to use a different citation style like MLA, Chicago, or CSE.
Review the sample paper linked below to guide you through formatting your paper in APA style.
Students, faculty, and staff have access to an APA Style paper template in Word, which is already formatted according to APA style rules. Follow the directions below to open the template, then simply add your own work to the pre-formatted sections.
