APA CITATIONS & STYLE QUESTIONS
It is that time of the semester! Your class papers, projects, and posters are almost due and you may find yourself needing help with APA citations and style. If so, these APA resources and tips should help you pull through. And it is also fine to contact your Curry librarian, Kay Buchanan with those tricky APA questions!
30-MINUTE ORCID WORKSHOP
Date: Tuesday, November 14, 2017
Time: 11am – 11:30am OR 5:00pm – 5:30pm
Location: Ruffner Hall, Room 302
Workshop: Introduction to Orcid
Description: Founded nearly five years ago, ORCID is a nonprofit organization that offers a free 16-digit identifier (“ORCID ID”) to academic authors and other contributors to research and scholarship. When you register for an Orcid account, you can attach your citations to articles, data and other scholarship you produce. This iD number allows researchers to connect themselves with their works and affiliations so their outputs can be correctly attributed to the author(s) and tracked throughout their careers. To date, more than 3.8 million ORCID iDs have been minted, and registration is growing at a rate of approximately 25,000 IDs per week. ORCID has produced a fun and informative video that provides an overview of Orcid services.
In this workshop, you will sign up for you free ORCID account. We will also discuss how ORCIDs are increasingly being required by publishers when submitting papers, and how funders are also starting to use them. Please bring along a laptop.
Instructor: Kay Buchanan
Registration is not required. I so hope to see doctoral students at this workshop!
BE SURE TO SEE THIS UVA ICONIC TREE
“Beloved by generations of University of Virginia students, faculty and staff, the Pratt Ginkgo, a ginkgo biloba tree on the northwest side of the Rotunda (near the UVA chapel), provides shade in the summer, a spectacularly colorful canopy in the fall, and then drops its leaves for a brilliant golden carpet.” — read the full article about the Pratt ginkgo.
Consider a brisk or leisurely stroll to experience the beauty of this tree at your university. You will be glad you did! Mid November through the first week of December should be a perfect time to visit this year.
NEW APA FORMAT GUIDELINES
APA posted this new information: Do you know Crossref? Crossref is an organization “working to make content easy to find, link, cite, and assess” (Crossref, 2016). One of their services is to register digital object identifiers (DOIs), and we follow their guidelines for display of DOIs.
Effective March 2017, Crossref has updated their DOI display guidelines, in part to ensure security (with https). For more details, see https://www.crossref.org/display-guidelines/ and https://www.crossref.org/blog/new-crossref-doi-display-guidelines-are-on-the-way/
Their new recommended format looks like this: https://doi.org/10.1037/arc0000014.
Although we recommend moving to the new format, in APA Style manuscripts, we will be accepting the older formats (doi:10.1037/arc0000014 or http://dx.doi.org/10.1037/arc0000014) or the new format (https://doi.org/10.1037/arc0000014).
We recommend that you pick one format to use consistently throughout a reference list. Read the entire post here.
