Assignment Reference Example Apa

APA format requires that your paper include:

  • A cover or title page
  • The paper itself (body/text)
  • A references page
  • Appendices (if necessary)

We strongly recommend that you:

  • Gather citations for the sources you plan to use as you do your research
  • Prepare your reference page BEFOREyou write your paper
  • Check the Tips & Hints section for time savers
  • Use Citation Generators & database "Cite" features with caution - great as starting points, but not 100% accurate

With these two tasks done, you can simply insert your references as you cite them, greatly simplifying the task!

Review the sections of this box for specific tips about each section of your paper, more resources & helpful videos that explain how to apply APA formatting in Microsoft Word.
