19 Question 5 in your handout: Find the APA Citation help for the journal article entitled: How to support families of children with disabilities? An exploratory study of social support services.

20 APA Citation help in Microsoft Word go to References tab, create (Insert) Citations, then when you have all you need, go to Bibliography 20

21 APA Style How to cite your sources & format your written work American Psychological Association Provides rules and guidelines for citing your sources in-text and in your references list and formatting ( stylistics )

22 Your work normally includes 3 types of material 1. Your ideas 2. Your summaries of others ideas and facts ( paraphrases ) 3. Quotations from your sources Source: (MLA Handbook, 2009)

23 Why acknowledge your sources? 1. Avoid plagiarism and its penalties. 2. Add weight to your statements by citing authorities that support you views. 3. Enable your readers to pursue the topic further, &/or evaluate your use of others work.

24 Example of a paraphrase (See rule in APA Manual, p. 171) [Word doc] In-text citation: Marriage in the future will become less central to the lives of adults (Nock, 2009, p. 302). According to APA, adding page number is optional for paraphrases - Centennial Libraries recommends inclusion

25 Example of a simple quotation fewer than 40 words (See rule in APA Manual, p. 171) [Word doc] In-text citation: According to some, marriage in the future will be less central as a defining event in the life course of adults than it is in the present (Nock, 2009, p.302).

26 [Word doc] Example of a simple quotation with fewer than 40 words (See rule in APA Manual, p. 171) This variation is also correct. In-text citation: Nock believes that current trends indicate that marriage in the future will be less central as a defining event in the life course of adults that it is in the present (2009, p.302).

27 [Word doc] Example of quotation 40 or more words (See rule in APA Manual, p. 171) Most research indicates that Americans see marriage as a positive value; for example: The market generates distinctions based on marital status because those willing to marry are viewed as more valuable. This has little to do with the law. Indeed, it contradicts the law. Like the market, countless other social forces are involved in creating distinctions among people that reflect their marital and parental statuses. Those who wish to reduce inequalities associated with marital status should be modest in their expectations about the impact of change on the institution of American marriage. (Nock, 2009, p. 321)

28 References (APA) Listed alphabetically at the end of your paper Each reference you cite in-text must appear in the References list, and each entry in the References list must be cited in-text. (APA Manual, p. 174) [Word doc] 28

29 Sample citation in APA style A journal article from a library database In-text citation example: (Manti, Scholte & Van Berckaelaer-Onnes, 2013, p. 69) Reference example: Manti, E., Scholte, E. M., & Van Berckelaer-Onnes, I. A. (2013). Exploration of Teaching Strategies That Stimulate the Growth of Academic Skills of Children with ASD in Special Education School. European Journal Of Special Needs Education, 28(1), Retrieved from ERIC database.

44 LIBRARY Databases provide Scholarly (Peer Reviewed) Journal limits

45 Example of a scholarly (peer reviewed) journal article Note: in-text citations

46 Note: References at end of article

47 Primary source In the context of academic research or writing: designating an original document, source, or text rather than one of criticism, discussion, or summary. Examples? -Oxford English Dictionary Online

48 Primary ( original ) sources Some examples: Scholarly (peer reviewed) journal articles that are write-ups of original research done (e.g. surveys, experiments, analysis of newspaper articles, coding of observed behaviour) Statistics or other data collected using accepted research methods (e.g. surveys, questionnaires, etc.) Other original documents or accounts: interviews with individuals who have direct first-hand experiences diaries, photographs, some newspaper articles, etc.

49 Secondary ( not original ) sources Some examples: Works of criticism Literature reviews of work done by others Summaries of others work Opinion pieces Discussion lacking research support

50 Why talk about this distinction between primary & secondary sources? Researchers say it is important! to know the difference between primary & secondary sources. Do you agree or disagree?
