Students are to post their questions pertaining to APA format and answer their classmate’s questions pertaining to APA format. Students are to share with their classmates at least 2 helpful hints they feel will assist others with APA. Also, students are to post an example of a Reference Page and two examples of an in-text citation in APA format.

Peer 1:  At this time, I do not have any questions about APA formatting. One tip that I have found myself struggling to remember is to make sure that the running head appears at the top of every page (Tips for Writing APA Style Research Papers, 2018). I have forgotten it in the past, mainly because I think that I get to wrapped up in the body of the paper that I forget the small details. The second tip I have is that we have to ensure that our in-text citations are done correctly (Tips for Writing APA Style Research Papers, 2018). I know that in some situations, the words just start to flow onto the paper, and I tend to just put in a generic where I found the information and come back later to do a proper in-text citation. I have forgotten to do this in the past, and I think it is important that we take the time to double check our citations.In-Text Citation Example(Devall, Lanier, Hartman, Williamson, Askew, 2017)ReferencesDeVall, Lanier, C., Hartmann, D.

peer 2:In text citation examples:In a Statistic report published by the Federal Bureau of Prisons (2022)….or(North Carolina Department of Public Safety, 2022)APA format is something I have been using since 2010. I feel that this format is quite standard even in Public School assignment requirements. Though there are other formats that are primarily used such as MLA, I find APA to be more “author friendly”. I remember using Citation Machine quite often back in high school, but as I took on higher level education I found that it was easier to just assemble citations myself. Although not a hint, I do find it frustrating to find great source information, but cannot pinpoint year or authors. Most often this leads to be not a great reliable source of information, but it would be nice to give credit to publications that spark idea and thought process. Cornell Law School.

Peer 3:I have found APA format to be easy especially when I’ve been challenged with Chicago and Bluebook format in previous courses.  APA formatting is something I am confident in as I have used it for over 10 years.  Due to the lengthy use and constant reference to Purdue Owl, I do not have any questions about it, but I do have two helpful hints for those who may not be so confident.  The first tip is to make sure you are following guidance for APA 7th edition as there are differences from the previous version.  For instance, certain titles are now bold and the words ‘running head’ are no longer listed in the header.  My second tip is to not copy and paste the citations directly from the online library databases onto your reference page.  I highly suggest you review the citation and compare to your reference tool for APA formatting to ensure the information is listed in the correct order (i.e., last name first vs. first name first).  Also, double check the data in the citation with what is printed on the article.  I have not seen it yet, but it would not be the greatest thing to copy and paste only to find out the journal title or volume was incorrect. As I have not found all my resources yet or even started my reference page for this course, I wanted to include one from a previous course.  Below is a sample reference page in APA format as well as in-text citations.ReferencesBoba Santos, R.
