Essay Formatting Styles: APA Format

APA (American Psychological Association) is the style that was created in order to standardize the formatting of academic papers written on social and behavioral sciences, so that the authors who write on these disciplines can format their own papers and work with the papers that are written by other people without any difficulties.

There are a few widely used essay formatting styles, but if you are writing something on psychology or sociology, make sure to use the APA style for your writing. The APA formatted essay should be double spaced with margins set up to 1” on each side. Besides that, you need to use 10 or 12 pt. Times New Roman font with a page header at every page.

In the APA style, quotations that are less than 40 words in length should be left in the body and placed into double quotation marks. After the quotation you need to mention the author’s last name, year of publication and the number of page in the brackets.

On the other hand, if quotation is more than 40 words length, you need to use a block quotation without quotation marks starting with a new line and indented five spaces. If you are using an online resource, you need to provide the author’s name, the year of publication and the number of pages (for PDF files), the number of paragraph and a heading. Even if you are retelling somebody else’s text in your own words, be sure to mention the author’s last name and the year of publication (in brackets). If you use the same source more than once in the same paragraph, don’t refer to the year again.

If there are two authors, be certain to mention their last names and publication year, however, if there are three to five authors, you should only mention their last names and publication year for the first time, but after that you can stick to using the first person’s last name and then write “et al.”

These are some of the most widespread guidelines for the APA formatting style, but if you want to get into a greater detail, be sure to read the manual or ask your tutor for assistance. It is crucial to know the intricacies of APA formatting prior to write anything, because otherwise you are risking to remake the whole paper all over again.
