Occupational Therapy: Citation Style Information

Citation Style Information

As you conduct your research, it is very important that you are able to correctly cite the original source where you found your information. Correct citations allow others to double-check your work and confirm that your research is correct.  For the two different fields represented within this class, we have included helpful information for the different citation styles that will be used in your primary field of research.

APA for Occupational Therapy

APA will be the primary citation style in use for the field of Occupational Therapy.  You can find out more information about this style through the following link.
