Many students look upon citation writing with a shudder, but proper citing is vital to good scholarship. Here a team of style and publication experts covers APA-style grammar and format, which is used by scientific journals and in many graduate and undergraduate classes. The volume also tackles big-picture issues including copyright, plagiarism, the publication process, and predatory journals.
VERDICT Taking on everything from tables and figures to bias-free language, this is a clear guide to APA style. Though much of the information is available online, the print format is concise and well organized.
