APA Style can be tricky, but we know all the tricks

Does your university department or journal require APA Style? Following APA Style guidelines can be laborious. Understanding all of the APA format and citation elements demands not only an encyclopedic knowledge of the Publication Manual, but also extensive real-world practice and experience. We know your work is too important to be held up by the time-consuming task of formatting your title page, abstract, headings, in-text citations, quotations, reference list, tables, figures, and appendices in APA Style.

Student using APA Style referencing

Our APA Style editors are here to help! They know all the APA rules that can be so tricky to remember — how to quote online sources with no page numbers, how to ensure each citation correctly matches the corresponding reference, how to cite multiple sources and multiple authors, how and when to use serial commas, and many, many more.

Ensuring your work perfectly meets all the requirements of APA Style can feel like a full-time job. Don't let this necessary but tedious step undermine the potential of your writing or take valuable time away from your work. Just focus on what you do best and trust our qualified APA Style editors to do the same. They will make sure your writing follows each and every APA standard, leaving you and your audience free to focus on the most important thing — the content of your work.
