Students and other users can easily save and create properly formatted APA Style references, and then use them to write a paper in the online editor. The online editor handles paper formatting (such as the margins and running head), and makes inserting in-text references a snap.

Users will find contextual help and cues embedded throughout APA Style CENTRAL, including links back to related video tutorials, and excerpts from the 6th edition of the Publication Manual.
