Oakwood University MBA and MPH Graduate Programs require the use of the American Psychological Association (APA) as a writing style for all papers. The American Psychological Association (APA) has created a writing style that is used regularly in social and natural sciences and understood by academics around the world. APA style helps to establish writing credibility, standard writing style guidelines and protects against plagiarism and other forms of academic dishonesty. In short, APA Writing Style provides best practices for formatting papers and using sources to acknowledge the work of others. The best resource for mastering APA Writing Style is the 6th Edition of the APA Manual. However, many other resources are available on the internet that support features of APA.
