APA Style

Publication Manual of the APAThis website from Professor Heesen shares valuable content related to the academic standards established by the American Psychological Association. It is based on the most current version of the Publication Manual of the APA, 6th edition

Students have limited time to write their papers and theses. Besides learning the details on how to conduct proper academic research and understanding the APA standards, they are also challenged to figure out how to apply these standards properly.

The quality of students academic papers and theses is increasing the more time they can spend on the subject matter. Getting familiar with the APA standards and how to properly apply them with a complex word processing software like Microsoft Word can be time consuming and unnecessarily increasing the stress for students. Consequently Professor Heesen developed a Microsoft Word Template and a corresponding book, which has been used by hundreds of students since 2006 in conjunction with his book "Wissenschaftliches Arbeiten" [Working Scientifically] published by Springer, which is a Bestseller on the topic of "Wissenschaftliches Arbeiten" [Working Scientifically] in Germany at amazon.de. The 3rd edition of Prof. Heesen's book "Working Scientifically: Methods for Bachelor-, Master- and Doctorate Programs" was published by Springer-Gabler in 2014.

Since then the template was upgraded and tested with the most recent version of Microsoft Word, Word 2016. The English book accompanying the template Thesis2016E was just published. It includes the content from both german books and describes in detail how to properly apply the standards of the internationally established APA Style Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th edition.
