Citation & Writing Guide: APA 7th Ed.

This Guide is intended to help students with various aspects of the general writing process from citation and formatting in both APA and MLA , Grammar, Plagiarism.


The APA Style is a writing style developed by the American Psychological Association (APA) that is used in many disciplines. The APA is one of the three most used styles here at EGCC. The following are some resources that can help introduce you to APA style.  

If your major uses the APA style, we recommend bookmarking the APA Style website and obtaining a copy of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association by APA. These resources contain the official APA standards and procedures for the APA Style.
