Community & Human Services: Help (citing & writing)

The APA (American Psychological Association) Citation Style is generally used in most human services. The APA Quick Tips handout below is great to print out and keep handy as you do your school work. Use the APA 7th Edition OWL Guide to look up all the nitty gritty details and specific permutations for whatever source you need to cite or format (like how to cite something with no author, or with a DOI).
