APA Workshop (graded) Each academic area of study has a particular style for documenting the ideas of other scholars. The standards of formatting document you’ve been using is from the American Psychological Association (APA). This is the preferred style in the social sciences. As you’ve noticed, there is a strong emphasis on the publication date. Why do you think there is such an emphasis on the date? As you work on revising your Course Project, what questions do you have about how to incorporate standard APA format and documentation guidelines into your essay? Are there any sources you are having a hard time documenting? Any questions about your reference entries? This section lists options that can be used to view responses.

Sort byResponse Sort byAuthor Sort byDate/Time* All: Professor Wright 2/15/2014 7:57:06 AM Any particular APA questions about documenting sources? I will be happy to answer them, but I would like you first to have looked for the answer yourself at https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/ If you can't find it, come back here and ask me. As far as the peer review threads go, there is an announcement which tells you which group you are in, or you can look in each group until you find your name in the first post. RE: All: Steven Wechsler 2/16/2014 9:01:22 PM My question was what are the change for one edition to the next and why the changes are necessary. As with any thing that has moving parts and the APA format has a lot of moving parts to it, it has to be updated. When new things are created, just like software they have to be updated to keep them fresh. I found the answer to my questions right where you said I would find it professor. Thanks https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/24/ Steven: Professor Wright 2/17/2014 5:55:39 PM Glad to hear it. It's a big site, but if you look around, you can find most things on one of its pages. I have had students ask me how to cite some really weird things like the backs of cereal boxes or baseball cards, which you might not find on the OWL site. But most normal sources are there:) RE: Anthony Thornberry 2/19/2014 6:32:19 PM All: I agree that most of the time the 'version' changes for APA citation seem rather redundant. I am also curious as to why the changes are made constantly. RE: All: Kelly Mills 2/19/2014 8:48:52 PM Anthony, I have the same question. Its hard to keep up with all of the changes.
