Thursday Thoughts: New Blog Series on APA Style Starts MondayStarting Monday, May 2nd, the Walden University Writing Center Blog will begin a series of blog posts dedicated to unpacking a variety of APA style-related topics. The Editors and Instructors who work in the Center with Walden students field a variety of questions which pertain to APA style. Now they'll have a chance to share their insights with you.
One thing you'll notice right away on Monday is that here in the Writing Center, we see APA style as more than just hard and fast rules to be memorized. APA style flows through the entirety of academic writing in the social science. It influences the smallest detail and the broadest theme. It's a way of communicating complex ideas and research in a logical, predictable, clear way. It's a way of being. It's a way of thinking.
In other words, this blog series will move beyond simple rules and boxes to check off. We'll do our best to explain how and why APA style asks you to make certain writerly moves.
Check back in on Monday for our first installment in the Exploring APA Style series: An Introduction to Capitalization Rules. See you then!
The Walden University Writing Center Blog is an instructional space where writers of all ilks can come together to learn about and discuss writing.
