AppendixThoughts about APA Papers Why so many details? Who has to use a manual? Can most people have perfect APA without a manual? Format and cite as one goes The minute an author uses an outside source, she should put it in the references If the audience ignores all of the other advice, the preceding point should be the one taken seriously.
