APA Style

Students taking psychology, human growth and development and other social sciences courses may be requested to format their essays using APA format. This is a set of standard instructions developed by the American Psychological Association (APA) to guide scholars submitting manuscripts for publication. These publication guidelines have been revised periodically since 1929, and can be found in the 6th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. Copies of this book are available for check out at CCBC Library, under the call number 808.0661 P96.  A copy is also kept at the reference desk for consultation.

The handbook adopted for English Composition I - Writing in College and Beyond also has a chapter on APA Documentation.
