What is a Scholarly Article?

APA Style

APA is the citation style designed and maintained by the Americal Psychological Association.  It is generally used by people in the social sciences including psychology, social work, and sociology.  APA style focuses on maintaining scientific rigor, and has numerous rules to limit plagiarism and to make scholarly communication concise and usable.  The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th ed. is available at both the JC Arnold and JC Hillsboro libraries.  You can also find help with APA citation on the Purdue OWL (Online Writing Lab). If you need assistance, please ask your librarian.

Check out this video tutorial on the basics of APA style.
