APA Style -- Official APA Website
The official APA website offers limited free assistance with APA Style. Following are several links to sections of the APA website with Style information.
APA Style Blog
Blog offers opportunities to ask citation style questions and get help from the APA community especially when the answer cannot be found in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association.
Tutorial, developed by APA, can be viewed in segments including those on the basics of citing sources.
These online sources are helpful in resolving citation style questions, however, they are not the official APA Style guide but rather an interpretation of the citation style and may be prone to inaccuracies. Always consult the official style manual first for the most accurate information.
