I shall add more “substantive” post over the next few days. Enjoy!

These APA guidelines provide a uniform structure to all articles, and it is good practice to adhere closely to their guidelines.

This short video takes away some of the sting by showing you how to set up your Microsoft Word document according to APA (6th edition) standards.
