APA Style is a set of guidelines that govern all aspects of scholarly writing (APA is the acronym for the American Psychological Association). It was developed to help writers communicate in a clear and concise manner. Students use APA to document their sources ethically and appropriately. It is the most frequently used citation style at St. Kate's.
St. Kate's Librarians recommend using the APA Style website as your primary resource for everything related to APA, especially if you don't have access to the 7th edition manual. The website provides in-depth guidance for documenting sources, most of which is under the Style and Grammar Guidelines section.
Each page of this guide provides relevant links to the APA website about references, in-text citations, and formatting an APA paper.
