APA Style

APA Style consists of guidelines published within the 7th edition of The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association
 
At Dalton State, professors in fields such as social science, STEM, the School of Education, School of Health Professions, and the Wright School of Business may require students to use the APA style for various types of assignments. 

Copies of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association are available at the Reference desk.
