In academic writing, it is important to acknowledge the contribution made to your work by others. This can be done by giving credit to the original author in an in-text citation and reference list. To avoid plagiarism, you need to incorporate other sources into your writing correctly by following the principles of proper citation and referencing. American Psychological Association (APA) Style helps to guide you through the formatting of your academic writing. It provides a wide range of rules and guidelines for in-text citations, references, paraphrases, direct quotations etc.
