APA paper will have a unique title that is the first paragraph of each chapter and is also referred to as an introduction, body, endnotes, notes, bibliography, citations, etc. APA paper can be written in a variety of formats such as HTML, MLA (Modern Language Association), Chicago style, Chicago Manual, and FLEX. Each of these formats has its own set of rules and conventions.
APA paper must contain an author's name, the publication's name, its affiliations, a bio, a running head for text, a list of references, a full-page bibliography, and a summary statement of findings. A running head refers to no more than fifty characters, beginning with the first words of the text, followed by a colon and one to two spaces, followed by an abbreviation, such as "running head," and then one or two spaces, and finally, one to two spaces. To make it easier for a reader to scan for information or citation, it is advised to use only two spaces and one reference. However, it is encouraged to use the whole word, including commas, hyphens, dashes, and commas.
A reference list is a list of publications listed in order of publication date. The APA reference lists are ordered by publication date. A "p." following a publication is called an author note. It is a brief note that provides the writer's name and some details of the work.
The reference list is used for citation purposes. An author must cite all authors in each source as well as sources from which quotations were taken. For example, when quoting from a journal article, a publisher's catalog, a journal article, conference proceedings, a bibliography, or a newspaper, the APA references must indicate the names of the editors who wrote the articles and the date of the article, respectively. The references must not refer to the primary author or to the APA as an organization.
The bibliography is the list of books or monographs cited. The bibliography must include the author, publisher, year of publication, page number, page designation, edition, type, date, and page designation, and edition of each book or monograph cited. The number of volumes or pages for each volume and the page designation of each page of each volume must also be noted in a format that indicates the page designation of the page in the book, page designation for the page in the book, or of the page in the book.
A bio is a short paragraph of more than 500 words that acknowledge the authorship and any other contributions of the authors to the work and acknowledges the views of the author. A bio is usually placed after the citation but before the table of contents. The bio identifies the authors, their institutions, and the affiliations.
The citations provide a concise summary of the text, including the full text of the cited publication, and list the full text of the cited material. The citations are not part of the text, but they are included on the final page of the paper. They appear at the bottom of the last page of the paper or in footnotes.
Bibliography consists of the list of published sources that are relevant to the main topic or theme. The bibliography lists the titles, dates, names, and locations of the sources and their locations in the document or on the internet.
Article is a statement about an established fact that may have been discovered or reported by a professional or expert. The article is written for general public consumption. It may be used as a reference work or as part of a research report.
Citation of sources is an integral part of the APA. It is an essential part of the APA paper as a whole. A citation lists the name of the source used for an item, where the source was located, the date of publication of the work, and the page designation of the page in the source (or where it appears in the source). The citation of sources is listed first, after the author, and in brackets after the journal, source or publisher of the material.
A citation is an essential part of the APA paper. It is part of the author information section at the end of the APA paper.
