I can't begin to say how helpful this has been. If I have ever been confused, I'd go to https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/. These are the only two sources I trust for my APA needs! ( )

The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association is the style manual of choice for writers, editors, students, and educators. It provides invaluable guidance on all aspects of the writing process, from the ethics of authorship to the word choice that best reduces bias in language. Well-known for its authoritative and easy-to-use reference and citation system, the Publication Manual also offers guidance on choosing the headings, tables, figures, and tone that will result in strong, simple, and elegant scientific communication.

Research is complete only when the results are shared with the scientific community. Although such sharing is accomplished in various ways, both formal and informal, the traditional medium for communicating research results is the scientific journal.
