In Social Science disciplines, the APA style is a set of standards for writing and documentation to help writers present their ideas in a clear, concise, and inclusive manner.
These standards are laid out in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, the official source for APA Style. As of 2020, the Publication Manual is in its 7th edition.
Tip: Pay attention to the edition offered by citation generator and management tools, and choose accordingly.
Use any of these citation generators to quickly create citations.
Use with caution, though. Not all are 100% accurate. Some miss finer details like capitalization or punctuation. Proof the final citations according to a style manual.
Temple's Student Success Center is an excellent source of help for writers.

It also offers email tutoring plus handouts and style guides on topics which writers frequently grapple.
The Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL) contains writing resources and instructional materials focused on the writing process, academic writing, mechanics, grammar, punctuation, and more.
