APA Resources

The programs in the Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work require students to follow APA formatting and citation guidelines.

Our resources below will help you to properly format your papers and to cite correctly. Learning to cite information correctly in-text and properly format references will help you to avoid unintentional plagiarism.

Even though citation managers like Refworks and Zotero are a good start for your references page, we highly recommend you use our Quick Guide to double check the information they give you before you turn in your paper. Often, citation managers provide information that is incomplete or in the wrong format.
