The American Psychological Association (APA) style is a collection of formatting, citation and stylistic rules that the APA sets for writers of research papers for academic coursework assignment and for publication.
For more detailed information, consult the APA 6th Edition Manual. Also feel free to consult a librarian for more help.
Be sure to check this APA TUTORIAL from the Online Writing Lab from Purdue University for help in formatting your essay - it shows you how to structure and format your essay, recommends ways to reduce bias, identifies how to avoid plagiarism, shows how to cite references in-text, and provides selected reference examples.
REMEMBER: You are expected to cite your sources IN-TEXT as well as in your Reference List.
A DOI is a digital object identifier – a unique alphanumeric code that gives a persistent link to the web location for an electronic item. DOIs are commonly seen on current electronic journal articles, but are also often included in the print version of the article.
1. Check the first page of the article for a DOI.
2. DOIs are often included in database records. If you're searching a library database like Academic Search Premier, and if a DOI is assigned to an article, you will find it in the database record for that article.
3. DOIs may also be found in the bibliography of an article. If you find a DOI in a bibliography and want to find the actual article (or further citation information), you need to use a DOI resolver (see:http://dx.doi.org ).
