APA style is a writing format used for research documents, commonly used for citations and sources in educational or professional pieces of writing. It was introduced by the American Psychological Association as a 61-page manual in 1952, published in the peer-reviewed Psychological Bulletin. It provides guidelines for the formatting of various aspects of a document, including citations, headers, margins, lists, quotations, table of contents, and titles.
