What is APA Style?
Made By Mitzy Joheniz Martínez Rivera 10mo "A"
Uniform style helps us scan articles quickly for key points and findings. Rules of style in scientific writing encourage full disclosure of essential information and allow us to dispense with minor distractions.
Style helps us:
-Express the key elements of quantitative results.
-Choose the graphic form that will best suit our
-Report critical details of our research protocol.
-Describe individuals with accuracy and respect.
The need for a consistent style becomes more apparent when complex material is presented, such as tables or statistics.
APA Style originated in 1929, when a group of psychologists, anthropologists, and business managers convened and sought to establish a simple set of procedures, or style rules, that would codify the many components of scientific writing to increase the ease of reading comprehension.
As with other editorial styles, APA Style consists of rules or guidelines that a publisher observes to ensure clear and consistent presentation of written material.
APA Style was established to codify the many components of scientific writing to facilitate clear communication and has enabled psychologists and scholars in other social and behavioral sciences to enhance the dissemination of knowledge in their respective fields.
Why is there a specific APA Style?
APA Style focuses on the needs and guidelines established in psychology and other social and behavioral sciences and does not cover general rules explained in widely available style books and examples of usage with little relevance to the behavioral and social sciences.
Among the most helpful general guides to editorial style are Words into Type (Skillin & Gay, 1974) and the Chicago Manual of Style (University of Chicago Press, 2005).
Style manuals agree more often than they disagree. Where they disagree, the Publication Manual, because it is based on the special requirements of psychology, takes precedence for APA publications.
