ED PS 2600, Strategies for College Success: Using APA Citation
What Is It?
Wikipedia says that APA Style is "a widely accepted style of documentation, particularly in the social sciences." At the U of U, the social sciences include Anthropology, Economics, Family and Consumer Studies, Geography, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology. For this class (and your other classes that fall under those departments), that just means that your bibliographies will be formatted according to a particular style.
Have questions about APA Citation Style?
Visit the Online Writing Lab at Purdue University. Their guide to APA is up-to-date and easy to follow. You'll become a pro at writing citations. Whatever you do, stay away from those automatic citation generators, like Citation Machine--they're almost always inaccurate.
