APA Style CENTRAL – Technical Requirements

Today we’d like to highlight one of our APA Style CENTRAL handouts, “APA Style CENTRAL® Technical Requirements” (PDF, 497K). Please feel free to link to this handout where students, faculty, and researchers will find it!

APA Style CENTRAL is designed to work with a wide range of technical settings within a Windows or Mac environment. The APA Style CENTRAL Technical Requirements handout will help you answer your users’ most common institutional access and technical questions. This document also provides helpful tips for the end user’s individual system configuration to ensure reliable access to APA Style CENTRAL and the best possible user experience.

Details include:

  • Operating systems, recommended browsers, and mobile access;
  • Proxy configuration, including appropriate browsers for proxy access; and
  • Contact information for APA Style CENTRAL Support plus the list of the technical information we will need from the end user to help resolve the problem.

Along with the Creating APA Style CENTRAL® Accounts handout (PDF, 296K, also recently highlighted on this blog), the APA Style CENTRAL Technical Requirements document will be a valuable resource in helping you to resolve any access difficulties for your end users as quickly as possible.

Want to learn more? You’ll find this handout on our APA Style CENTRAL® Handouts and Guides page, where we will continue to add handouts and documentation for users and administrators as they become available.

APA Style CENTRAL – Create a User Account

Today we’d like to share an excerpt from one of our APA Style CENTRAL handouts, “Creating APA Style CENTRAL® Accounts” (PDF). Please feel free to link to this handout where students, faculty, and researchers will find it.

When using APA Style CENTRAL, you will need an account in order to write or collaborate on a paper, create a reference list, or use the research planning and tracking tools.

We all have more accounts than we know what to do with (or can remember!), but here’s the good news:  Any existing APA account can also be used as your APA Style CENTRAL account — including a MyAPA, APA membership, APA PsycNET®, or MyPsycNET account.

Not sure if you have an existing APA account to use for APA Style CENTRAL?  Do a quick check by visiting your institution’s APA Style CENTRAL home page. At the top right corner of the screen, select Welcome and Log In; then on the next screen, select the No account? link:
