BADM 236 Business Communications and Critical Thinking CJ: APA Style - Assistance

Built for Dr. Cynthia Johnson by Dan Maynard

APA Style Guides from the 7th Ed. website

The links below are directly from the American Psychological Association website. Note that the School of Business may have requirements not listed in these, or other,  guides. Follow the APA Template provided in the LibGuide built for  your class, or your professor's instructions.

The APA web site is greatly improved! I no longer recommend the Online Writing Laboratory (OWL) at Purdue. Please note that Citation Generators are problematic if you do not already have a working knowledge of APA Style. Under APA rules students are responsible for local adaptations required by the professor or the institution their work is submitted to. The APA Template provided on the LibGuide incorporates adaptations of APA style requested by the faculty and leadership of the Lundy Fetterman School of Business. Please check with your professor if you are in doubt as to the standards by which your work will be graded.

Legal References: In APA Style, most legal materials are cited in the standard legal citation style used for legal references across all disciplines. See Chapter 11 of the Publication Manual covers APA guidelines for legal references. For more information see The Bluebook: Uniform System of Citation (Bluebook, 2015). The Bluebook is available in the Wiggins Library Reference stacks (first floor) at call number KF245 .B58 2015.

Use of Citation Generators & advice sites e.g. OWL at Perdue
