Many thanks to my colleague Laura Ripper for this week's top link, The Basics of APA Style Tutorial, a brilliant introductory resource for editors, proofreaders and writers.
Says the APA, "This tutorial is designed for those who have no previous knowledge of APA Style®. It shows users how to structure and format their work, recommends ways to reduce bias in language, identifies how to avoid charges of plagiarism, shows how to cite references in text, and provides selected reference examples."
