An ideal tool for students writing research papers across the disciplines, the POCKET GUIDE TO APA STYLE, 4th Edition, offers straightforward explanations, annotated examples, and margin notes designed to help students write properly documented papers in the latest APA style. Thorough and practical, this concise guide is not only less expensive and easier for undergraduates to use than the APA Manual, it also includes additional information about the research-writing process. In this updated edition, students will also find extensive coverage of electronic sources, preparing them to both evaluate and correctly use Internet references in their own research. The 4th Edition incorporates all essential changes reflected in the sixth edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (2009).
