Every single professor in college has different opinions about what goes into a APA paper. lol
David Taylor (6 months ago)
True. APA pubishes "guidelines" that editors and teachers interpret and apply as they wish.

Hi David, It looks like it's been awhile since you last published anything, but is there any chance that you might make a MLA version 8 video. Yours are great! Thanks!

Mary Brown (9 months ago)
okay, thanks
Mary Brown (9 months ago)
when I am reading the articles I see the authors comment on the gaps they find. Do I point out what they miss based on what I am looking for on my topic? I am finding writing a literature review difficult.
David Taylor (9 months ago)
Yes, what the experts say to be gaps can be great indicators of what the gaps actually are. Make a list of the gaps that several authors agree on. But you really how to watch the literature review video: https://youtu.be/TdJxY4w9XKY
Mary Brown (9 months ago)
Mr. Taylor how do I recognize Gap in a research article and how do I write the background of my topic? SOS help!
David Taylor (9 months ago)
To find the gap, you must first do a literature review. You may want to check out this online tutorial on how to write a lit review in 30 minutes or less: https://youtu.be/TdJxY4w9XKY There is also a text version http://www.peakwriting.com/litreview/Index.html

Teresita bacena (1 year ago)
What is the spacing in between paragraphs or main topic (say, Introduction and Background of the Study)of an APA?
David Taylor (1 year ago)
The guidelines are: double space throughout. That includes between sections and between a heading and the next paragraph. Sometimes Word will try to put in an extra space between paragraphs. Turn off that function in the paragraph dropdown menu.

Good job, Eva. And good luck!
Eva Das (1 year ago)
It's a thesis proposal, so no instructions. But I got help from one of my friends so all is well. Also I recommended her your literature video. Thanks again. Keep making such videos
David Taylor (1 year ago)
What kind of procedure is it? Did you professor give you any instructions as to how to write the procedures section? From the ones I've read and written, they are very straightforward and written like a "how to" but in the past tense.
Eva Das (1 year ago)
As in how to write the procedure. Even though I have visualised the research, i have been unable to organise the information.

lia sosa (1 year ago)
Thanks David for your excellent presentation, I looked at several and am so pleased to find your tutorial. You have the perfect pitch and timing, makes understanding so much easier. Do you have any videos to format Word doc 2016 in MacBook. I have been out of school for a while and see formatting is a whole other science now. I have followed the above tutorial but some of the options you show are not available to me, eg with entering page numbers, I have 1 on first page but it does not continue to page 2. You go to Insert and page nos, I don't have the current position option to choose. Thanks, appreciate all your help!

No worries David, Thanks so much for all your work

lia--I'm so sorry. Haven't use a Mac in years. Look around on YouTube. I'm sure something's here.
Jesus Gonzalez (1 year ago)
why write running head?
David Taylor (1 year ago)
The running head is a holdover from the paper days in case pages got separated.
Curtis Fuller (1 year ago)
I can't read all the comments (because there are so many!) but I just learned today that the 6th Edition sets two spaces after a period as the renewed standard. I was under the impression that two spaces was no longer appropriate. Thoughts?
Dawn Magee (1 year ago)
I am a college instructor and was about to make a video with instructions to set up APA 6th edition style in word when I ran across your excellent video. May I share it with my students?

HELLO!!!!!!!
Pt Leshoure (1 year ago)
Hi, do these rules still apply for papers written in 2017?
David Taylor (1 year ago)
Yes, the current edition of the APA Style Manual is the 6th Edition.
Mary Callaway (1 year ago)
Do you have any information about embedding a block quote? Thank you.
David Taylor (1 year ago)
Sure--a block is simply indented an extra half inch from the left. Everything stays double spaced before and after. Do not use quote marks for the indented quote, and make it sure it's 40 words or longer.
Yasaman Mehmansefat (1 year ago)

David Taylor (1 year ago)

Zubair A Bajwa (1 year ago)
Do we follow the same procedure if we are writing a thesis using APA formate, please?
David Taylor (1 year ago)
A thesis statement or thesis sentence are only 1-2 sentences long. APA style does not apply to them. APA style refers mainly to document format and citation format. Let me know anything else you need.
Khalen Flowers (1 year ago)
Can you do this same thing in google docs or are the steps different?
David Taylor (1 year ago)
You can use Google docs to set up an APA style manuscript. The tools at the top are different, but you can still achieve the same settings.
Superb detailing by presenter about APA 6TH Edition .. Nice and easy words have used in presentation. I am from Pakistan. My language is a URDU.

Thank you for providing such valuable information!!! Is greatly helping me in graduate school.
David Taylor (2 years ago)
Great to hear, Brandon. Let me know anything else you need.
Hi David, I am using word 2011. I am trying to follow each step but for some reason I cannot seem to click on header to save title on cover page. I can only click on close which then deletes everything. I also don't need to have the abstract included on cover page. I am assuming I should proceed with Title etc in the middle of the page? I know you are using the 6th edition which looks very different than what I am using but perhaps there is still a way for me to figure this out. Word is new for me and I am having difficulty setting this up so I can proceed with typing my paper correctly. Any help would as always be appreciated. Thanks so much..
David Taylor (2 years ago)
Here's a video on writers block that might help: https://youtu.be/uxI6sziUuOw
Thanks so much! You have been so helpful with this and looking at my thesis. I still am dealing with writer's block but I am hoping I will get passed it soon.

Julie--After you have entered your information in the header area, just click anywhere in the middle of the page. you can also just download this Word APA template and change the info to yours: http://www.peakwriting.com/APA.docx

m.bains (2 years ago)
If my articles already have an abstract paragraph, do I copy and paste it or do I still write another paragraph in my own words?
David Taylor (2 years ago)
The abstract (fancy word for summary) is a summary of your paper, not the articles you consulted. So you are summarizing your own paper in your own words. No quotes. No citations in your abstract of your paper. Check to make sure your teacher wants an abstract before writing one.
David Garcia (2 years ago)

David Taylor (2 years ago)
Try to distinguish between the container (APA) and what goes into the container (your thoughts, words, etc.). Everything you write for consumption has a container (underlying template), whether a sympathy letter, sonnet or revenge tragedy. APA is an academic template. Consider it an exercise.

Is there a video like this one, for those using a MacBook Pro?

Good question. I don't know. If you're using a Mac-version of Word the commands may be in different places but the results should be the same.

rrr T (2 years ago)
Can anyone tell me if I am summarizing in article in apa, do I use the name of the article for the "title" (on the title page)? If so, do I also include that authors name in that title and then my name below that...I'm confused. I checked OWL but didn't find my answer. Thanks in advance.
comptaylor (2 years ago)
+rrr T To change running head, follow instructions in video above.
rrr T (2 years ago)
Please disregard my last question...I found the answer in OWL...it should be a shorter version of title. Now i just have to figure out how to chg that running head without messing up everything else. Thanks again!
rrr T (2 years ago)
Oh one last question if I may. Do I also use that for the running head?
rrr T (2 years ago)
Thank you so very much!!! I will go back and change it accordingly. You have saved me from a huge embarrassment! Many blessings to you!
comptaylor (2 years ago)
+rrr T On your APA title page you would write: Summary of "Prison Overcrowding in America" then your name, then the name of the school. This is the same title (Summary of "Prison Overcrowding in America" ) you would use at the top of your intro paragraph on the first body page. It is not necessary to include the author's name in your title. But when you begin discussing the article you would mention the author's name.
