APA Style: For your paper you need to include a title page, bibliography, and appropriate in-text citations. An example of how citations might appear in your paper is as follows:
One study discovered that individuals with very mild dementia perform worse than healthy older adults on temporal reproduction (Bangert, 2009).
Or if you have more than one author . . .
(Dixon & Bangert, 2005)
Or, if you include the author names in the text of your paper, the citation would work as follows:
Dixon and Bangert (2005) discovered that . . .
Other useful tips:
1) Use the bibliographies of sources you locate to find other relevant articles for your paper.
2) Once you’ve identified a scholar doing research in your topic area, it is often useful to look at other works published by that person to get a better sense of what their position is regarding the topic. What research does this author criticize? What can his or her position reveal about important controversies/questions in the field?
