What is APA Format?

APA Editors for Dissertations and Theses | APA 6th Edition

What is APA style?

The style guidelines outlined in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA) are detailed rules for producing consistent content to aid in comprehension. APA style is used for academic documents such as research proposals, theses, dissertations, capstone projects, journal articles, and books.

APA guidelines apply to all aspects of writing, including word choice, grammar, tense, capitalization, and punctuation, as well as specific requirements for aligning and spacing text, labeling figures and tables, formatting headlines, and citing references. APA rules are detailed and unconventional, and students often find them finicky and frustrating.

Why hire a professional APA editor?

Writing a thesis or dissertation is challenging because students must read literature, design proposals, conduct research, and gather information to be compiled into one important document. Writing that document can become overwhelming when the degree-seeking candidate must prepare it according to a prescribed format.

Most academic institutions require APA style, and many modify or supplement APA with their own guidelines. Because APA editors are intimately familiar with APA style requirements, they can eliminate days, weeks, or months of frustration for students who are already frazzled from reading and research.

APA requirements are specific and uncompromising. Without the help of an APA expert, the majority of master’s theses, doctoral dissertations, and research papers contain scores of errors. A professional APA editor can wipe away those errors, leaving behind a clear, understandable, well-written document.

What is the role of the APA editor?

The APA editor polishes your writing to conform to APA style and to accepted academic standards required by your school. In addition, the APA editor reduces wordiness, eliminates colloquialisms and slang, verifies gender-appropriate and bias-free language, formats in-text and block quotations, and ensures that you are using active voice and present or past tense appropriately, according to the 6th edition of the APA manual. Citations and quotations are checked for inclusion in the reference section, and references are formatted according to APA rules for books, periodicals, conference proceedings, and works from electronic medi<.

Final thoughts

Don’t agonize over what to italicize, whether to use “fourth” or “4th,” or how to correctly punctuate sentences. Instead, use your time to research, collect data, and prepare a working draft of your paper, and let your APA editor attend to the nitty-gritty details of polishing your paper.

Surprise your faculty advisor or committee by submitting a well-crafted APA-compliant paper. You will spend a few dollars–but you will not waste hours trying to find the sentence in the APA manual that explains how to cite references downloaded from the Internet or whether to write “percent” or insert its symbol. Hire an APA editor and avoid all the aggravation.

Save your time and effort; life is too short.
