Be sure to include all of the information required: Group Topic, APA citation and abstract of the article and your summary. You will add the summary only after Prof. Perkins has approved your article.
Each of your article submissions will include the complete APA formatted citation of ONE article followed by the abstract. You will then type your summary of the article below the citation and abstract.
1: The easiest way to get the citation and abstract is by copying the information from the database into your Word doc. Go into your email, find the article record (you remembered to email yourself the article, yes?) and click on the link to go back to the article in the database - if you are off-campus you will need to log in with your MyWCC userID and password.
2: Open a Word Document or Google Docs doc
3: From the article record in the database, click on the CITE button and scroll to APA. Copy (highlight then hit ctrl + c):
4: Paste (ctrl + V) the citation into your document file:
5: After deleting the URL, the citation may still not be formatted correctly, so highlight the entire citation:
6: Go to Format > Paragraph in the toolbar (or click on the arrow at the bottom of the Paragraph section of the Word toolbar.)
7: Choose Hanging under SPECIAL and Double under LINE SPACING > OK.
(Note: GoogleDocs does not have a hanging indent function, but a workaround is shown at the following link: http://alicekeeler.com/2015/05/28/google-docs-create-a-hanging-indent/
Ta daa! You now have a pretty APA formatted citation.
Go back to the article citation and scroll down to the abstract. Highlight and copy like before and paste that into your doc under the citation for your article. The Abstract does not need to be double spaced.
