On the left side of the header type my header “ NICOTINE ON THE HUMAN BODY”. “ NICOTINE ON THE HUMAN BODY” You DO NOT need an abstract; on the page after your title page, just begin your paper. You DO NOT need headings and subsection titles in the paper for different sections In-text Citations Include author’s last name or authors’ last names and the year published – last name only, do not include initials Example – (Williamson, 2013). Or your textbook (Rathus, 2020). If you have multiple authors… 2 authors – always list both authors’ last names and year (Feist & Rosenberg, 2015). 3 – 5 authors – include all last names (no first initials) in first citation, but if you cite it again only list 1st author’s name with ”et al.” and then the year. Examples 1st time (Jones, Smith, Michaels and King, 2010) 2nd time (Jones et al., 2010) 6 or more authors – list only 1st author’s last name with “et al.” and the year each time cited. (Morrison et al., 2017).

If you are unsure how to put information into your own words, the quote it directly word for word. If you are including a quote, use “ “ around the direct quote and then also include a page number in the citation. In APA page numbers are needed only for quotes. “Short-term memory temporarily stores a limited amount of information before it is either transferred to long-term memory or forgotten” (Feist & Rosenberg, 2019. p. 252). or According to Feist and Rosenberg (2019), “Short-term memory temporarily stores a limited amount of information before it is either transferred to long-term memory or forgotten” (p. 252). Do not use a quote longer than one sentence. You need to be able to explain or discuss the idea on your own. Do not quote a whole paragraph. For all citation – Note that the punctuation is after any parenthesis at the end of the sentence; not at the end of the words of the sentence.

EasyBib has a charge for APA , citationmachine.net is free. • At the top of the list of references, put “References” • First thing listed for a resource is author’s or authors’ name(s) – last name first followed by initials • List resources in alphabetical order by the authors’ last names Check Purdue OWL site for additional APA info on reference listing at the link below – https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/05/ Also the library has printed out APA guidelines you can pick up to help you. • Use a hanging indent with reference list – highlight your reference listings, right click, chose “paragraph” near the middle. Then click the “Special” drop down window and chose hanging. Click OK • Titles in reference list – only capitalize the first word, rest are lower case. • If you copy and paste a resource listing on your document, make sure to keep italics and then use a hanging indent. Use paste option “Keep Source Formatting.” • Your paper is double spaced, but the reference list is single spaced. Textbook in APA format for reference list – yes, you can copy and paste this reference below right onto your reference list. Easy Peasy!
