APA (American Psychological Association) 7th edition is used in the areas of the behavioral and social sciences.
There are formatting rules one follows when writing a research paper (margins, page numbers, titles, capitalization, etc.), creating in-text citations in the body of the paper, and writing full citations on the References page (the last page). View an APA
sample paper. Some professors may ask you to submit your papers to Turnitin,
a plagiarism-checking database.
You must have both
the in-text citations and the References page which is a list of all sources you used for your paper. There is an online citation builder,
BibGuru (see link below), which you can use to create citations.. Gallaudet English Center
has helpful tips on how to avoid plagiarism, verbs you can ue to introduce authors' ideas, and more!
