What is APA?

The American Psychological Association (APA) provides a method for source documentation that is used in most social sciences courses. The social sciences place emphasis on the date a work was created, so most APA citation involves recording the date of a particular work in the physical text. The date is usually placed immediately after the authors name in the References page at the end of an essay. Essays following the APA style of formatting typically include a title page, abstract, main body, and references.

Formatting Differences

APA uses a title page. The title page contains the title of the paper, the authors name, and the institutional affiliation. On the title page, the essays title should be centered in the upper half of the page. The title should be no more than 12 words in length and should not contain abbreviations. The title may take up one or two lines. Beneath the title, type the authors name: first name, middle initial, and last name. Beneath the authors name, type the institutional affiliation, which should indicate the location where the author conducted the research. https://owl.english.purdue.edu/media/pdf/2009021201 3008_560.pdf

Formatting Differences (cont.)

The page header at the top of every page contains the TITLE OF YOUR PAPER on the left hand side in all capital letters. This page header is usually a shortened version of the essays title and cannot exceed 50 characters including spacing and punctuation.

Citation Differences

The last page is titled References not Works Cited. It is centered at the top of the page. Do not bold, underline, or use quotation marks. Only the first word of a title is capitalized. Also capitalize the first word after a dash or colon. Do not italicize, underline, or put quotes around the titles of shorter works such as journal articles or essays in edited collections. Books: author name, publication year, work title, publication city, and publisher
