Reference List: Basic Rules (https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/05/)
Your reference list should appear at the end of your paper. It provides the information necessary for a reader to locate and retrieve any source you cite in the body of the paper. Each source you cite in the paper must appear in your reference list; likewise, each entry in the reference list must be cited in your text.
Your references should begin on a new page separate from the text of the essay; label this page “References” centered at the top of the page (do NOT bold, underline, or use quotation marks for the title). All text should be double-spaced just like the rest of your essay.
- All lines after the first line of each entry in your reference list should be indented one-half inch from the left margin. This is called hanging indentation )(French indent).
- Authors’ names are inverted (last name first); give the last name and initials for all authors of a particular work. If the work has more than seven authors, list the first six authors and then use ellipses after the sixth author’s name. After the ellipses, list the last author’s name of the work.
- Reference list entries should be alphabetized by the last name of the first author of each work. (Omitted the articles: A, An, The).
- For multiple articles by the same author, or authors listed in the same order, list the entries in chronological order, from earliest to most recent.
- Present the journal title in full.
- Maintain the punctuation and capitalization that is used by the journal in its title.
- For example: ReCALL not RECALL or Knowledge Management Research & Practice not Knowledge Management Research and Practice.
- Capitalize all major words in journal titles.
- When referring to books, chapters, articles, or Web pages, capitalize only the first letter of the first word of a title and subtitle, the first word after a colon or a dash in the title, and proper nouns. Do not capitalize the first letter of the second word in a hyphenated compound word.
- Italicize titles of longer works such as books and journals.
- Do not italicize, underline, or put quotes around the titles of shorter works such as journal articles or essays in edited collections.
- Please note: While the APA manual provides many examples of how to cite common types of sources, it does not provide rules on how to cite all types of sources. Therefore, if you have a source that APA does not include, APA suggests that you find the example that is most similar to your source and use that format. For more information, see page 193 of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, (6th ed., 2nd printing).
- Review, check all, the orthography, grammar and redaction. Some teachers peer or tutor can help.

Monograph APA 6th edition
Title page- It is better to select the title when you finish the monograph. Prepare between two or three then choose one. The title should summarize the main idea. Write a title that will attract and convince and encourage the reader to read it from the beginning. The title should be centered on the page, double-spaced, not be bolded, underlined, or italicize.
The Running head: cannot exceed 50 characters, including spaces and punctuation, is a shortened version of the title. Should be in capital letters. On the title page, the running head should include the words “Running head”. For pages following the title page, repeat the running head in caps without “Running head”.
Abstract: a brief summary of the paper, quickly review the main points and purpose of the monograph. Should be 150-250 words. The word “Abstract” should be centered. Do not indent. Typically, an abstract is required only for publication. But our assignment instructions indicate a requirement to use an abstract.
Text or body: Start with an introduction, should have a background support, or an anecdote, a historic detail or an era and place location. The introduction presents the problem that the paper addresses.
Can write an argument statement. Presents your analysis about your theme, organized and correctly. Avoid insignificants details. Remark the updated information and the most important conclusions. Your presentation must be justified and subtended by previous investigations. Cited and follow the instructions to do it properly (Cummings, 2012). Include Appendix, refer to it in the body of your paper and create a bibliography too (see Appendix A).
Conclusion: The conclusion restates the problem the monograph presented and can offer areas for further research. Start with a sentence that subtend or refuse the problem. Remark the consequences and the conclusions of your project.
Guides questions: How my monograph contributes? How it resolved the problem?
References: Include all the information resources you used to create the monograph. Should be on a new page, center the title “References”, and alphabetize the bibliographies. Double-space all entries. Every source mentioned in the paper should have an entry including the appendix.
To write your References can ask your librarian, visit the APA official webpage http://www.apa.org/ or visit the blog Manejo de información (carmenamelia4.wordpress.com)
Appendix: Appendix is presented in the final of your monograph. Provide brief content that supplement your paper: tables, graphics, illustrations, interviews, photos. If you are including an appendix, refer to it in the body (see Appendix A). It should be by alphabetical order in your text. The Appendix should be in a separate paper each one. Centered the title “Appendix A”, included a title that explain the content. Remember to avoid plagiarism, create the reference.
