Transcript: First, purchase a copy of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. Then, read it. The manual is not just a reference; it is a style manual with advice on how to write in your discipline. Of course, the book is used as a reference because there are too many rules to keep in one’s head. The more you use the reference, the quicker it will be to find the information you need. Don’t get frustrated when the index is of no use whatsoever. Again, the more familiar you are with the manual, the more you will save yourself time and frustration. APA style is commonly used in science-related fields It is a parenthetical system of citations In-text citations can be cross-referenced to the references page. References www.apastyle.org Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association Members of a discipline share research, so that community of scholars needs an agreed upon set of rules—a style or format—to make the scholarship standardized and accessible to other scholars of that field. Basic Strategies for Mastering APA Style Using APA style properly adds to your credibility as a writer and researcher in your field. Personal communications are not recoverable, so do not include them in the reference list. Cite them only in-text, and use a date. J.J. Jones (personal communication, June 10, 2010). APA tables do not use vertical lines. (See page 130 in the Sixth edition.) APA Without Tears Using APA style properly adds to your credibility as a writer and researcher in your field. Synthesize your sources a number of ways: “The author-date method of citation requires that the surname of the author. . .and the year of publication be inserted in the text at the appropriate point: DOIs DOI stands for digital object identifier. They function as links to referenced content. This way readers can find your sources easily Not all journals use this method as of yet, but most do. One work by six or more authors uses the Latin for “and others” “et al.” on the first reference. Jones et al. (2010)... This is the only Latin abbreviation that can be used outside parentheses. When a secondary source is used, give the secondary source in the reference list; in text, name the original work and give a citation for the secondary source. Jone’s study (as cited in Johnson, 2010). If the date of a source is unknown, use n.d. in the parenthetical citation. If a source does not have page numbers, cite the paragraph and use the abbreviation “para.” (Jones, 2010, para. 7). The paper should be double-spaced throughout and have one-inch margins. Members of a discipline share research, so that community of scholars needs an agreed upon set of rules—a style or format—to make the scholarship standardized and accessible to other scholars of that field. The Basics: A note about plagiarism: “Researchers do not claim the words and ideas of another as their own; they give credit where credit is due (APA Ethics Code of Standard 8.11, Plagiarism). Quotation marks should be used to indicate the exact words of another. Each time you paraphrase another author (i.e., summarize a passage or rearrange the order of a sentence and change some of the words), you need to credit the source in the text” (APA,2009, p.15). Kessler (2003) found that among epidemiological samples Early onset results in a more persistent and severe course (Kessler, 2003). In 2003, Kessler’s study of epidemiological samples showed that” (APA, 2009, p.174). APA Without Tears Do read chapter 3, “Writing Clearly and Concisely” carefully.

Ten Tips for Better APA Style On the cover page, in the words “Running head,” the “h” is not capitalized. Begin page numbers on the title page, which is page 1. If “and” is inside the parenthetical use the &, otherwise spell out “and.”(Jones & Johnson, 2010). Jones and Johnson (2010) found. . .

Transcript: By: Ines P Jacob B Jocelyn S Samantha L Javarious T APA Style Guide Definition: What It is American Psychological Association, or APA for short, is a popular type of style guide to writing. Written by Written by: Basically, in 1929 a lot of people with _ came together and came up with this style. Granville Stanley Hall was a major contributor. "originated in 1929, when a group of psychologists, anthropologists, and business managers convened" (apa style guide) Why it Was Made Why it Was Made: It was formatted in attempts to have a consistent style to writing/research in the psychology and social science departments, as well as in education. "Uniformity and consistency enable readers to (a) focus on the ideas being presented rather than formatting and (b) scan works quickly for key points, findings, and sources." (apa style guide) Helps keep track of important info fewer grammar problems reference citations presentation of statistics done the same way How That's Useful: How That's Useful Written For Written For: It was mainly written for scientists and doctors for when they did research. "in response to the needs of researchers, students, and educators across the social and behavioral sciences, health care, natural sciences, humanities, and more" (apa style guide) Typed and double-spaced on (8.5" x 11") paper 1" margins on all sides. 12 pt. Times New Roman font or any other readable font Format Paper Format Title page Title page Title of the paper Author’s name Institutional affiliation Page header that has the title of your paper with all caps and page number on the right side Should be “Running head: SHORTENED TITLE OF YOUR PAPER” Abstract Abstract Follows the title page Separate page titled with the centered word “Abstract” Summarizes the topic of the paper and main ideas/important findings Ranges from 150-250 words Body Body This is the Introduction, Method, Results, and Discussion in this order. Intro Introduction Doesn't require heading Include title at the top of the page in upper and lower case followed by the text Include background information and address the problem/topic that will be presented in the paper Method Method Describes how the research/test/experiment was conducted Subsections/subheadings: participants, measures, and procedures. Subheadings are left-justified Participants (subjects in the experiment) Measures and procedures: includes the materials and equipment used in the experiment and explains how the research was conducted Results Results Summarizes the findings and the data collected Tables and graphs can be included, but make sure they’re simple Label each visual with an Arabic numeral and title Discussion Discussion This explains your interpretation/evaluation of the findings Reiterate the problems addressed in the intro Summarize the study (and its limitations), hypothesis, and results Proper grammar usage is important to keep the reader focused and not disengaged. Improper grammar can lead to your work being unclear to your audience. Writers also need to steer away from language that will create bias or prejudice. Language and Grammar Language & Grammar Anthropomorphism: the writer giving human attributes to inanimate objects. Make clear and logical comparisons and make sure that your comparisons can’t be mistaken or taken out of context. Make sure you keep the verb tense the same all the way through your paper to avoid confusion and keep a steady pace throughout the writing. Both active and passive voice can be used in APA but writers tend to overuse passive voice. -Use active voice more to deliver clear and direct sentences. Use first person pronouns instead of third person to be more concise and direct. Avoid "we" to refer to a large group of individuals in general. The singular usage of they is encouraged when describing someone's whose gender is not known or relevant to avoid bias and it's inclusive. Grammar Grammar Accuracy and precision are strive for in APA. This includes all biases for gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, etc. Use only the characteristics that are relevant to the report. Be only as detailed as you need to be. Don't over do it. Be sensitive to the labels that people have attached to them. Choosing these labels with care and thought insures that people's humanities are kept. Compare groups of people with respect and thought. Stay away from comparisons that will unrightfully bid two groups against each other. Bias- Free Language Bias Free Language Tables and figures are an easy and effective way to present data such as statistics as well as information. Tables mostly deal with numbers, however some might have to do with words, such as K.I.M.S. charts. Figures can be a few different things, ranging from graphs to picture examples. Tables & Figures Tables & Figures Example Example: Separate page Double space all entries For references include the: -author -publication date -title -where it was published -publisher -address or access number Tables

Burger (2008) conducted a replication of Milgram’s (1963) original obedience study. Although many people believe that women are more talkative than men, Mehl, Vazire, Ramirez-Esparza, Slatcher, and Pennebaker (2007) found essentially no difference in the number of words spoken by male and female college students. results discussion references APA STYLE Recall that Mehl et al. (2007) found that women and men spoke about the same number of words per day on average.
