Whether on the job or in a classroom, writing skills are essential. Take advantage of the writing coaches through an online platform (UPSwing). Start with UPSwing by creating your account at the link provided. Proofreading, or basic editing, is provided by Grammarly. Visit the writing coaches in person at the Reading & Writing Hotspot (see box below).
Giving credit by citing information sources protects a writer from plagiarism. The presence of citations informs readers where additional information can be found and lends credibility to your writing. In this course, you will create citations following APA 7 style.
Instructions for formatting your APA paper and creating citations are in the APA Format Helps box below. Please note that the 7th edition of APA was released in October 2019. Be sure you are consulting an updated source for correct information on APA 7.
