Having problems writing your paper? The Writing Center offers individual appointments with a writing consultant. Writing Center Consultants will give honest feedback about where the writing confuses them, or loses them, particularly interests them, leaves them needing additional explanation or support, and the like. They can help writers to organize their arguments more effectively by asking them, for example, what the organizing principle at work in the current draft is.

The American Psychology Association (APA style) is designed for the social & life sciences (e.g. psychology, anthropology, medicine).
The APA style manual proscribes 2 different sets of rules: one for IN TEXT citations, and the other for the REFERENCE LIST (which appears only at the end of your work). The examples shown below are for both formats and come from the newest version of this APA style manual, the 7th edition, published in 2020.
These examples use the 7th edition of the APA's Publication Manual, with preference given to the author-date method of citation; the author's last name and year of publication are inserted within the text of the paper. When the author of a work is overtly designated as "Anonymous", then "Anonymous" takes the place of the author's names within an in-text citation.
