What is APA?
APA stands for American Psychological Association. Strange as it may sound, a standard citation is related to psychology. This is a set of rules for presenting a document or an artifact created by a group of researchers. Currently, APA is a recognized and widely used rule by universities or academic literature around the world.
APA citations typically contain the author’s last name, date of publication, and may include a page number or date. You should include sources cited in the document each time you quote or paraphrase someone else’s ideas or content. Doing so will help you identify the original author and avoid Plagiarism.
