Style guides help writers determine how to format their papers (e.g., the width of margins, font size and type, line spacing, etc.) as well as citations (i.e., documentation of sources used in research for writing).
APA Style is the official style of the American Psychological Association and is frequently used in fields like nursing, library science, and social sciences.
In APA, you must cite sources that you have paraphrased, quoted or otherwise refer to in your research paper.
Cite your sources in two places:
