About APA Documentation

The American Psychological Association (APA) has set forth standardized rules for scientific communication. 

These rules are typically referred to as “APA style of documentation” or simply “APA.”

The goal is to maintain uniformity while allowing for minimal distractions to scholarly writing. 

At RCC, you may use APA in order to document your sources and avoid plagiarism.
