Citing Resources

The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association   (known as the APA Style Manual) is the accepted style manual for this program.  Sources of particular note:

APA Style (6th edition) online resources include the following:

  • General research paper guidelines
  • Abstract writing
  • Main paper sections
  • In-text citations
  • References format-print and electronic

Citing Electronic Resources

When citing electronic resources (websites and library databases), be sure to use the detailed citation guidelines authored by your instructor. Those guidelines are in the following PDF file labelled CITING.

Looking Ahead to Thesis Writing

Be aware that UW-Stout's thesis guidelines do not completely follow APA style. There are thesis-writing pages available on the library home page.

Do not hesitate to ask for assitance when you come to thesis-writing! A few minutes of time spent with me (through email or phone conversation) just might save you hours of  time.
