Summary

An ideal tool for students writing research papers for psychology, sociology, business, economics, nursing, social work, and criminal justice courses, this new brief reference manual offers easy access to the APA documentation style, along with research writing basics. The Pocket Guide to APA Style is a convenient, portable reference that helps students write properly documented papers. In addition to thorough coverage of APA style, the book includes an overview of the research writing process entitled "Writing Scholarly Papers," two sample APA-style papers (including one experimental research paper), and three useful appendixes.
