APA Frequently Asked Questions

Welcome to the APA Guide

This guide is designed to offer assistance with using APA citation style. The American Psychological Association (APA) citation style guide is commonly used for avoiding plagiarism in research papers. It is important to cite the information that you use during your research. No matter where you find the information, from a book, journal, magazine, newspaper, interview or the internet, you must give the author credit for using his or her work and ideas. Remember: When in doubt, cite!

For additional assistance, please see a librarian at the reference desk.
