APA Style Guidelines for Student Papers

The standard writing style for the social sciences, including education, comes from the American Psychological Association (APA). Many resources are available to you to format your writing, including the Purdue OWL Online Writing Lab and a recently created page by the McKay School of Education called APA for Novices. In addition to these online resources, faculty recommend turning to the Writing Center in the Harold B. Lee Library, students and alumni from the editing program on campus, and a number of editors that are available for hire. The editors listed below are not officially endorsed by the McKay School of Education or the IP&T department.
