Pocket guide to APA style
An ideal tool for students writing research papers across the disciplines, the concise and inexpensive Pocket Guide to APA Style provides straightforward explanations, annotated examples, and margin notes to help students write properly documented papers in the latest APA style. In addition to step-by-step coverage of documentation, the book includes an overview of the research-writing process entitled "Writing Scholarly Papers" and three useful appendices. Thorough and practical, this convenient reference guide is also less expensive and easier for undergraduates to use than the APA Manual.
The Second Edition features expanded coverage of electronic sources to keep students up-to-date on using and evaluating Internet references in their research. In addition, this new edition provides more guidance on avoiding plagiarism. The two sample APA-style papers—one argumentative and one experimental—are carefully annotated to give students extra support as they master the elements of manuscript preparation and documentation principles.
