The APA format is readily used in academic writing for its format and use in the fields of social sciences. As mentioned in the Capella APA iGuide, it is also "readily recognizable" and by using APA educators are "ensuring consistency across degrees, programs, and school" around the country.(n.d., p.1) In this way, it becomes easier to find and read citations, because all educators are on the same page. APA format also, "has a foundation in academic honesty and integrity." (n.d., p.1) Students are required to produce citations to identify where the basis of their ideas and thoughts are coming from. These citations not only help the educator, but also help to give credit to those who produced the studies.
Capella's Academic Writer, helps students to better understand the APA format. According to the Capella web page, Academic Writer provides students with ways to" learn, reference, and write." (n.d.,p.1) Students can learn more about the basics of the APA format. Students can identify ways to build up references and to better use search engines. Finally, students can find resources to check their academic work and sample papers to use as examples for their own writing. Academic Writer is a valuable resource for us to use while conducting research during our Master's program.
