3 What is APA Style?
APA Style is a set of guidelines covering many different aspects of scholarly writing, including:
- formatting (title page setup, margins, line spacing, font, headings, etc.)
- mechanics of style (spelling, punctuation, capitalization, italics, etc.)
- use of bias-free language
The APA Style Manual is published by the American Psychological Association (APA) and is used in psychology, nursing, business, communications, criminology, engineering, and related fields.
