Definition

"When editors or teachers ask you to write in APA [American Psychological Association] Style®, they are referring to the editorial style that many of the social and behavioral sciences have adopted to present written material in the field. APA Style was first developed 80 years ago by a group of social scientists who wished to establish sound standards of communication.  Since that time, it has been adopted by leaders in many fields and has been used by writers around the world. American Psychological Association.
