Webinars to offer overview, answer questions about APA format

The CSU Success Center will be conducting two webinars on the 6th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA).  The APA guide is a widely used resource guide developed to assist with writing and the citing of sources, which helps to prevent plagiarism and to acknowledge the original author of the information used.

The first webinar, titled “APA Overview,” will be held at 2 p.m. CST  July 26  and again at 2 p.m. CST  Aug. 2. This webinar  focuses on the basics of APA format and how/why CSU uses it in coursework. This session will briefly touch on aspects such as why CSU uses APA format, the Academic Integrity Policy, originality/balance while writing and how to research using the online library.

The second webinar, titled “APA: FAQs,” will be held at 2 p.m. CST July 28 and again at 2 p.m. CST Aug. 4. This webinar focuses on frequently asked questions in regard to APA format. This session will answer questions about APA  such as: What is APA? When would I use it? and What is required?
