In most social science classes, you will be asked to use the APA (American Psychological Association) system for documenting sources, which is set forth in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association
, 7th ed. (Washington: APA, 2020). APA recommends in-text citations that refer readers to a list of references.
- APA requires one space after sentence-ending punctuation (periods, question marks, exclamation points) for final documents, but two spaces for drafts in the body of the document
- Your editor will default to one space
- If you would like your editor to use two spaces, please include this request in the document description
