6 Full Title of Paper Student’s Name William Carey University Course Name Instructor Due Date Abstract An abstract summarizes what your paper is about. It should appear on separate page. Full Paper Title [Introduction and Thesis] This template is formatted properly according to APA Style. It contains the correct order, placement, margins, fonts, headings, etc. Use it like a form and just fill in your information in the appropriate places. [Supporting Paragraphs] Remember, you need to cite all information in your paper that originates from outside sources. To do this properly according to APA Style, you will need to include both in text citation and a Reference list. In text citation is a brief parenthetical citation that comes directly after a quote or paraphrased information. The general in text citation format is: (Author’s Lastname, Year, p. #). Here is an example that paraphrases the conclusion of a research study: Research show that 30% of teenagers prefer green grapes (Smith, 2015, p. 89). Another way to format this statement: Smith (2015) conducted a study which shows that 30% of teenagers in the United States select green grapes over any other color of grape (p. 89). Never repeat the author’s last name in a sentence and then again in the citation. In the previous example, notice the author’s last name was not included in the in text citation and that the year always follows the author’s last name. Would you prefer to use a direct quote instead? Follow this format: Smith (2015) concludes in his study, “After analyzing the preferences of 570 teenagers in the United we have determined that 29.8% selected green grapes over other varieties” (p. 89). If you are using a direct quote and the source does not have page numbers, count and list the paragraph number: (Doe, 2015, para. 16). [Conclusion] References ALastname, F. M. (Year Published).
