Purpose of this Tutorial

I have developed this tutorial to provide standardized guidelines for main elements of writing papers using APA style. This is not intended to be an exhaustive list, but instead a quick reference for information that is common to most papers.

Please note that you are responsible for reference to the "Publication Manual" for any additional APA features that are not mentioned in this resource guide.

One additional point, this tutorial is a resource and in no way intended to avoid purchasing the "Publication Manual". I hope this resource is of benefit as you develop your academic writing skills.
