I have also cited any sources from which I used data, ideas or words, either quoted directly or paraphrased. I have added quotes whenever I used more than three consecutive words from another writer. I also certify that this paper was prepared by me specifically for this course. Student s Signature: Instructor s Grade on Assignment: Instructor s Comments: PS: The APA sample paper is written in accordance with the basic guidelines of the 2001 version. The paper has been shortened to simply show headings and sub-headings. The three different levels of headings (used for short academic papers) have been highlighted in bold black (level one), blue (level three) and red (level four) to show their placement. Please be aware that each faculty may add his/her specific requirements and preferences as well. Please edits and suggestions to

2 APA Writing 1 APA Writing Style and Mechanics: A User s Guide Writing in the style prescribed by the American Psychological Association (2001), Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA 5 th ), can be a daunting experience for both students and faculty members (Polly Proofreader, personal communication, January 4, 1999). Green and Gold (1996) suggest that an additional guide can be helpful, minimizing the need for searching through the sometimes confusing and highly detailed text of APA 5 th. In this paper, a review of the information most often used by students is presented. Always consider faculty s directives and expectations in the classroom. Format Considerations The most common errors students make are in the margins, running head, header, and reference page format (Green & Gold, 1996). Additional errors noted by faculty include in-text citations of direct quotes or paraphrased material (Maka Mistake, personal communication, September 20, 2001). Correct Margins Margins are required to be one inch equally since student papers are not bounded. That is, if the top and side margins are one inch, the bottom margin must also be one inch on each page of the text. This rule does not apply to the last page of the text, which may end at any point above the one-inch margin. The rule is broken to avoid placing a lone heading on the last line of the page or a single line of text on the top of the next page. Running Head The running head appears only on the title page, at the left and top margins. The entire title may be used if it contains 50 or fewer characters, counting spaces between words, not including the words Running head. If the title is longer than 50 characters, an abbreviated

3 APA Writing 2 version must be used (APA, 2001). An example of a properly placed running head is shown on the title page of this paper. Page Header The header contains the first two or three words of the title and appears on the third line from the top edge of each page, above the margin, in the right-hand corner, five spaces to the left of the page number. The automatic function of a word-processing program should be used to print the headers and page numbers consecutively in the paper, with 1 appearing on the title page. Reference Page The hanging indentation is used for the reference page; that is, the first line of the reference, usually the author s name, rests against the left margin, and the following lines are indented 5 or 7 spaces or ½ inch. APA (2001) recommends setting the tab key to ½ inch. The reference page is alphabetized by author and contains the date of publication in parentheses, directly after the author s name. Next, the title, the place of publication, and the name of the publisher are listed. The proliferation of electronic materials has prompted the APA to create formats designed specifically for Internet and web-based written material. Students should frequently visit the APA website at for current formatting of references. Only those references that have been cited in the paper are listed on the reference page. For purposes of demonstration, however, a variety of references are listed on the reference page of this paper, some of which are not cited in the text. In-Text Citations Direct quotations. Direct quotations must mirror exactly the original source, even if errors are contained in the original. To alert the reader that any errors are part of the original material, the word sic, enclosed in brackets and italicized, should follow the erroneous material.

4 APA Writing 3 The source of information must be cited. The format of direct quotations may vary with the placement of the quoted material in the sentence. The reader is referred to page 121 in the APA 5 th edition. Quotations of less than 40 words are enclosed in double quotation marks. Use single quotation marks within double quotation marks to set off material that in the original source was enclosed in double quotation marks (APA, 2001, p. 119). Quotations of 40 words or more are set in a block format without quotation marks. The block quote is started on a new line, indented 5 spaces or 1/2 inch. A sample block quote is contained in this paper. Paraphrased material. Paraphrasing allows the writer to use the ideas of another, to represent another s argument, and to give proper credit to the original author or authors (Lawton, Cousineau, & Hillard, 2001). Each time an author is paraphrased, the source must be cited in the text. Page or paragraph numbers are not required for paraphrased material, but APA 5 th edition encourages writers to include them (APA, 2001, p. 121). Plagiarism. Plagiarism constitutes a serious academic concern. According to Lawton, Cousineau, and Hillard (2001), academic communities demand that writers credit others for their work, and that the source of their material clearly be acknowledged (para. 6). They further state, a mark of strong academic writing is the practice of situating one s claims and findings within a tradition of inquiry into the subject (para. 4). No distinction is made between intentional and unintentional plagiarism. Other Format Issues Although APA (2001) suggests that an abstract of an article precede the text, an abstract is not used in the short (6 to 10 pages) papers submitted by university students. Faculty members may require an abstract in certain courses.

5 APA Writing 4 Preferred typefaces in APA style are 12-pt Times New Roman or 12-pt Courier. Writers should avoid using any software settings that reduce spacing between words or letters. Writing Mechanics for Academic Papers Correct grammar, punctuation, spelling, and sentence structure are essential components of professional writing (Smyth, 1996). Strunk and White (1979) emphasized the importance of being succinct: Vigorous writing is concise. A sentence should contain no unnecessary words, a paragraph no unnecessary sentences, for the same reason that a drawing should have no unnecessary lines and a machine no unnecessary parts. This requires not that the writer make all of his sentences short but that every word tell. (p. 23) Grammar Grammar is a sine qua non of language... (Gordon, 1993, p. xv). Rules of correct grammar seem to be virtually unknown to the present generation of college students (Harvey Harried, personal communication, October 20, 1999). A few of the rules of grammar will be addressed. Subject and verb agreement. A singular noun requires a singular verb, and a plural noun requires a plural verb (Strunk & White, 1979). Words that intervene between the noun and verb do not change that basic rule. Noun and pronoun agreement. If a writer uses a subject which is singular, he or she must use pronouns which are singular. In order to avoid having to use he/she and his/her, writers may reword the sentence and use a plural subject, thereby eliminating the problem. For example, the sentence A student applying for a job must carefully proofread his or her application can be reworded to read, Students applying for jobs must carefully proofread their applications. Use of plurals can help writers reduce sexist bias and avoid stereotypes.

6 APA Writing 5 Punctuation Correct punctuation establishes the rhythm and readability of sentences. In APA style, only one space is used after periods, commas, colons, and semicolons. When a hyphen is used, no space appears before or after the hyphen (APA, 2001, pp ). Correct use of commas and semicolons can be problematic for students. Writers are encouraged to proofread their papers to ensure proper use of commas (Purdue University Online Writing Lab, 2001). Capitalization Capitalization is used to designate a proper noun or trade name, as well as major words in titles and headings. Instances where capitalization is not used include: laws, theories, models, or hypothesis, such as ethical decision-making model; names of conditions or groups in an experiment, such as experimental or control group; or nouns that designate parts of a book, such as chapter 8 (APA, 2001). A common error in capitalization is its use with the name of a specific educational degree versus the general focus of a degree program. An example is Master of Arts degree versus master s degree in visual arts. * NOTE TO STUDENTS * USE OF THIS WRITING GUIDE DOES NOT PRECLUDE THE NEED TO REFER TO THE APA PUBLICATION MANUAL.

9 APA Writing 8 Appendix A APA Information First of all, special congratulations go to my colleague Dr. Ronald Levant, Dean of the Center for Psychological Studies at Nova Southeastern University, who was Elected President of the American Psychological Association (APA). APA is the largest organization of psychologists in the world with approximately 160,000 members and affiliates. Dr. Levant has a vision for psychology s future that is aimed at addressing society s most pressing problems. On January 1st, 2004, Dr. Levant began a one-year term as President-Elect, and serves as President of APA in To provide more information about the basics of APA, review this sample paper for APA format. The writing requirements of the school mention the expectations and some guidelines for APA papers, so the sample paper basics might be more helpful. Your papers need to have a cover page (university cover page is fine), title, headings, sub-headings, a running header on top right side in the "Header & Footer" section of each page, page numbers, one inch margins, appropriate references in the APA format, and other APA requirements. As suggested, a supplement to the book can be looked at the APA website. If you search the WWW for "APA" you can find some information to complete your assignments in the format required by the university. An APA format template may also be retrieved from microsoft.com. Once at their website, just search for APA format template. It is from the APA Manual 5th edition.

10 APA Writing 9 Headings and Their Placement According to APA Manual 5th edition, the following are the main heading levels used for long papers: None are underlined or bolded and usually student papers use levels one, three and four for their papers. 5 - CENTERED UPPERCASE HEADING 1 - Centered Uppercase and Lowercase Heading 2 - Centered, Italicized, Uppercase and Lowercase Heading 3 - Flush Left, Italicized, Uppercase and Lowercase Side Heading 4 - Indented, italicized, lowercase paragraph heading ending with a period. For Example: EXPERIMENT 1: AN INTERVIEW VALIDATION STUDY External Validation Methods Used for Validation Participants in the Study Sleep-deprived group. Sleep-deprived individuals under this study confirmed that their productivity decreases under this condition. Productivity increased when they received proper amount of sleep.
