APA Style is a set of rules and guidelines for creating consistently formatted written materials.
GGU instructors frequently require students to use APA Style when writing research papers, short assignments, and presentations.
APA Style format impacts how your paper looks, the layout, and the information you provide about the sources you used for your research.
APA Style rules and guidelines are designed to address all elements of a comprehensive research paper. However, many of your assignments will not require all the elements of a research paper. Read your assignment instructions carefully. Follow your teacher's directions and adapt APA Style format rules to your assignment requirements.
Throughout your studies at GGU, most instructors will require you to cite your sources using APA Style citations and a reference list. This guide will help you format correctly.
By the way, there are other citation styles (MLA, Chicago, Turabian, etc.). Make sure you are supposed to use APA, and when selecting a citation from a database or citation generator select APA.
Plagiarism is a form of academic dishonesty. To avoid plagiarism, cite your sources using APA Style citations.
