2 Topics How can what you already know help you (or trip you up)? Why do I need APA?How do I get started?TemplateGuides you can trustAre there any shortcuts?What about these fine points?How do I cite the sources for this class?Recommended resources
3 1. Quote words from source Example 1: whole sentence“APA style was developed by social and behavioral scientists to standardize scientific writing” (Basics, n.d.).Example 2: selected wordsMany editors and reviewers “have extremely low tolerance for APA errors” (Onwuegbuzie, Combs, Slate, & Freis, 2010).However you take notes, be sure to distinguish between sources words and your ownTip: you can select words as long as you don’t distort the meaningsSelect, but stay true to author’s intent “The director hoped to create “…an epic on a an epic on a grand scale; the grand scale….” result is an epic failure.”
4 1. Quote marks or block? Example 3: 40 words or more This is how a block quotation looks: Format each quotation with 40 or more words as a block. Begin each block quotation on a new line. Indent the quotation .5 inch from the left margin. With this formatting, you do not need enclosing quotation marks. Place final punctuation before the in-text citation. (Munzenmaier, 2013)Using a block quotation is much like yielding the floor to another speaker. If you must use a long quotation, provide an introduction that shows how it relates to your own thinking.Quotation marks are redundant
5 2. Credit ideasParaphrase After studying hundreds of definitions of procrastination, Steel (2013) concluded that all had one idea in common: people knew they would pay a price for delay, but still chose to put things off.To cite an idea that you put into your own words • Use an in-text citation• Omit quotation marks

7 3. Credit twice in-text citation (ch. 6) reference entry (ch. 7) Ferrari (2000) has classified procrastinators as arousal types, avoiders, and decisional procrastinators.Ferrari, J.

8 3. No citation = plagiarism AMBROSE"Up, up, up…”"Up, up, up….”CHILDERSReal-life case: well-known historian Stephen Ambrose plagiarized Wings of Morning by Thomas Childers. That led to examination of Ambrose’s other works, and several authors found multiple cases of plagiarism, dating back to his college papers. The last years of his life were shadowed by this (although it didn’t hurt his sales). David Plotz of Slate called Ambrose a “vampire”:The ensuing descriptions follow a similar structure and share many other words in common.
9 3. Can you recognize source? "Up, up, up, groping through the clouds for what seemed like an eternity. ... No amount of practice could have prepared them for what they encountered. B-24s, glittering like mica, were popping up out of the clouds all over the sky."—Thomas Childers, Wings of Morning, p. 83"Up, up, up he went, until he got above the clouds. No amount of practice could have prepared the pilot and crew for what they encountered— B-24s, glittering like mica, were popping up out of the clouds over here, over there, everywhere."—Stephen Ambrose, The Wild Blue, p. 164“The Times's David Kirkpatrick then discovered that Ambrose, in writing The Wild Blue, had taken not only the passages from Childers's Wings of Morning for which he had apologized, but also five passages from two other books: The Army Air Forces in World War II, by Wesley Frank Craven and James Lea Cate, and The Rise of American Air Power: The Creation of Armageddon, by Michael S. Sherry.”Which is why David Plotz says “Stephen Ambrose is a vampire.”“The Good, the Bad, and the Phony”Childers accepted the apology, but removed Ambrose’s book from his syllabus (noting wryly that Ambrose probably wouldn’t miss the sales)

Alphabetize reference list A well-written paper creates a new organization.What is procrastination?Steel (2008) has described all procrastinators as trading “short-term gain for long-term pain.” Ferrari (2000) classified those who habitually delay into three categories: arousal types, avoiders, and decisional procrastinators. While most people occasionally put things off, some are chronic procrastinators whose delays disrupt their lives: “Remember, 80% of us procrastinate, but 20% are procrastinators” (Ferrari, 2005).Both Steel (2008) and Ferrari (2000, 2005) emphasized the negative.

29 9. Block quotes ≥ 40 wordsWrite a sentence that puts the quotation in context.Start quotations of 40 words or more on a new line, indented .5 inchPlace final punctuation before in-text citationMost experts believe that procrastination always has negative consequences. HoweverChu and Choi (2005) say that not all procrastinators are lazy and undisciplined. While passive procrastinators are more stressed and less efficient, active procrastinators can adapt quickly to fast-changing environments. They are energized by pressure and “if something comes up, they will switch gears and engage in new tasks they perceive as more urgent.” The key is that active procrastinators use delay as a conscious strategy. (Bellum, 2012)

35 Give credit; avoid plagiarism Cite words and ideas from other authorsQuotations taken word-for-word from a sourceParaphrases and summaries of other authors’ ideasInformation and ideas that are not widely known or available in a basic reference workAnything from a source that might be mistaken for your own words or ideas if left uncitedThe assumption is that you’re going to be influenced by other authors. For example, Pink mentions Alfie Kohn’s Punished by Rewards (1999). You may agree or disagree with the premise that rewards can backfire, but you can’t claim expertise on motivation if you don’t know Kohn’s work. (other e.g.s, Selye--stress; Knowles--adult learning; James McGregor Burns--leadership)When in doubt, cite

Thus, it is clear that authors who submit manuscripts to journals wherein APA style is required would benefit from becoming as familiar as possible with the Publication Manual” (Onwnegbuzie, Combs, Slate, & Frels, 2010, p. ix).Academic writing: show me the evidenceOnwuegbuzie, A.

38 Give credit; get credit What’s cited shows the quality of your researchWhat’s not cited shows the quality of your thinkingMost researchers define procrastination by its negative consequences, including Ferrari (2000, 2005), Steel (2010), and Tice and Baumeister (1997). Yet Chu and Choi (2005) argue that procrastination can be a productive way to adapt to rapidly changing priorities. Consider this real-life example. At the beginning of a curriculum writing projects, guidelines often go through several rapid revisions. Veteran writers who wait for final guidelines before submitting work meet Chu and Choi’s criterion for productive procrastination because they consciously use delay as a proactive strategy.Two kinds of thinking going on--debunking myth and drawing conclusion from Boice’s studiesParenthetical citations let you distinguish between your thoughts and the authors.

45 How do I learn APA? Two common approaches: Sweat the small stuff Advantage: builds a sense of confidenceDisadvantage: lots of small stuffThink functionalityAdvantage: fulfills purposesDisadvantage: requires persistenceOnwnegbuzie, Combs, Slate, and Frels identified 40 most common errors, and many are things we’re not going to cover. As you move forward, you’ll want to pay attention to number style, biased language, and any instructors’ pet peeves.
46 APA’s two purposes Acknowledge any words or ideas from other sources. Provide enough information to locate your sources.Those are the basics. Remember that the rules about how to implement these principles were made by people who would wear T-shirt (and who would also look it up to find that per Webster’s 11th, it is indeed hyphenated)
47 What about the small stuff? One option: use a templateTom will you the template. You can also download it.
48 What’s the trick?You don’t need really advanced Word skills to create an APA-style document, but many people are not comfortable creating different headers and footers, sections, and hanging indents.

49 Where do I start?The Basics of APA Style is the best way to get up to speed on format. Some of the formatting requirements are a bit challenging, so you can download a template
50 Where do APA experts live? For specific questions, the quickest way to find an answer might be to search the APA blog. The odds are that if you’re struggling with a question, someone else has struggled with it too--and they might have sent it to the experts at the APA Style blog.
