APA Format

APA style was developed by the American Psychological Association (APA). APA style serves as a common system for standardizing writing and provides a way for giving credit to others for their contribution to your work. Since the citations to original sources appear directly in your text, this allows the reader to see immediately where your information comes from while saving you the trouble of having to make footnotes or endnotes.
