APA, which stands for American Psychological Association, is the most commonly used citation style within the social sciences. APA format refers not only to how references should be cited, but also to how your paper should be structured. Locate lots of information about APA formatting, including video tutorials, podcasts, and archived workshops by selecting APA & Citation Guides from the Quick Links box at the Library welcome page:

For formatting information, select APA The Easy Way: Formatting in the APA Workshop Archives box.
