APA style is widely used in the behavioral and social sciences, including psychology, sociology, economics, education, nursing, social work, and criminal justice. APA style prescribes a set of requirements for the formatting of a research paper. While the manual gives specific rules and examples, there may be a need at times for interpretation of the guidelines. Consultation with your professor about the specifics of APA style is always recommended.
