Join members of the APA Style team as they provide an in-depth look at the simplified reference system by describing the rationale behind it, how to format references using it, and the ways in which references are easier to create because of it. The webinar will answer one of the most frequently asked Style questions: how to cite a work found online. The APA Style experts will use real-life examples to walk through the process of creating references for a variety of common webpages and websites, including ones with missing or hard-to-locate information, found via a database, and needing electronic source information (DOIs, URLs, and retrieval dates).
Join the style experts as they provide an in-depth look at the APA Style citation system, including how to create and format in-text citations for all types of print and online works, integrate source material into a paper, and cite at an appropriate level. The session will also answer some of writers’ most frequent citation questions: how to paraphrase versus directly quote from a work, how to cite long paraphrases from a single source, when to include a page or paragraph number in a citation, and how to cite when a work has no page numbers.
Start the semester right with an in-depth webinar on creating accurate and complete APA Style student papers. In this webinar, APA Style experts will show simple ways to set up student papers (typeface, line spacing, margins, page numbers, etc.), with an emphasis on how default word-processing software settings align with seventh edition style. The experts will then focus on the sections included in all student papers: title page, text, and reference list, with a brief discussion of tables and figures as well. They will walk through the elements needed for each section and then systematically address any needs for different typeface, line spacing, and alignment within those sections—for example, how those factors affect the format of headings, section labels, block quotations, and table and figure labels. The session will conclude with final steps for organizing papers and strengthening their overall quality and presentation.
