APA: Writer’s WorkshopPT 2

APA : 

APA There is an APA paper template in our course materials forum, simply open it up and begin typing your paper, this can help you reduce time and frustration. The following will take you through the APA basics for setting up your papers as well as referencing material. Please remember this is an overview and is not a replacement for the APA Manual.

APA : 

APA Paper set-up All of the page margins should be set to 1” (File – Page Set-up – Margins) All papers should be written using Times New Roman 12pt. Font All papers should use a running head, located at the very top of the title page, aligned left, containing the first 50 characters from the title, do not use incomplete words. The title should appear in all capitals

APA : 

APA Title pages Centered with the information in this order. If you are on a team, the names appear in alphabetical order by last name OR in order of contribution Running head Page header – Right aligned

APA : 

APA Level 2 is aligned left, italics Level 1 is Centered, normal APA Headers

APA : 

APA The reference page, like the title page is its’ own section, after completing the last sentence of the conclusion press enter once, then Insert – Break – Page Break The reference page has the word “Reference” centered at the very top All of the references appear in alphabetical order by the first word in the reference The reference page is double spaced Each reference is aligned right with a hanging indent on every line except the first – the hanging indent is 5 spaces

APA : 

APA To format the hanging indent you will: highlight all of your references Then move the bottom arrow on the ruler over 5 spaces Do not grab the square part, just the bottom arrow, the square will naturally move when it needs to, if you grab it you will be adjusting the top and bottom arrows

APA : 

APA Citations and References go hand in hand, you cannot have one without the other. Citations are in-text “notes” essentially that refer the reader to the reference list The reference list, or reference page as it is often referred to as, is a detailed account of where the author obtained the information used to write the material being read.

APA : 

APA In-text citations can be added in 1 of 3 forms; here are the appropriate ways to add an in-text citation to your work: Author (Year of Publication) Westlake (2003) blah blah blah Westlake and Jones (2003) blah blah blah Author in year of publication Westlake in 2003 blah blah blah Westlake and Jones in 2003 blah blah blah (Author, year of publication) Blah blah blah (Westlake, 2003) Blah blah blah (Westlake & Jones, 2003). {using this form the period comes after the close of the parenthesis} If you are using material from a book or document with a lot of pages then you will need to add the page number after the year like so: Westlake (2003, p. 5) {single page} Westlake (2003, pp. 5-10) {multiple pages} (Westlake & Jones, 2003, p. 5) Westlake in 2003…..blah blah blah….(p. 5).

APA : 

APA References take a number of forms depending on the material being referenced. We will cover a few basic forms here; however, the APA Manual covers all of the reference forms in-depth and should be referred to often.

APA General rules for references and citations If no author is listed use the publishing organization Example, University of Phoenix If there is no publication date listed use n.d. This is rare, even on websites that appear to have no date you can usually find one by going to the home page When there is more than one author listed on a publication the authors should appear in the order listed on the publication

APA and the Library : 

APA and the Library This citation is not always in correct APA format be sure to double check This page lists all that you need for a reference and citation The only time you need to cite the database is when it is listed as the publisher
