Formatting Your Research Papers

APA Style and Citation Format

The Occupational Therapy program requires all papers to follow the American Psychological Association 7th Edition Manual of Style.  For a summary of the rules for formatting your paper, citations and references, see the APA Help (7th Edition) Research Guide.  You should purchase your own copy of the APA Manual of Style (7th Edition) since it is not available online. More examples of citations can be found on the APA Style website using the search box (click the magnifying glass icon).

The WCU Library webinar series is offered each term; check the schedule and register to watch 45 minute lectures APA Overview, APA Part 1, and APA Part 2.


RefWorks is an online tool used to store, organize, and cite your sources for research papers, and it can work with your word processor to automatically format your inline citations and bibliography from your list of sources. The RefWorks YouTube channel from ProQuest has a series of video tutorials.
