Page 1 Learning Objective The purpose of this document is to guide students through the process of planning, writing, and evaluating a term paper, which follows the style outlined in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA Manual). The seven writing guidelines include basic information, step-by-step procedures, and annotated templates, which illustrate practical application of American Psychological Association (APA) format. Because the APA Manual presents guidelines for preparing a manuscript for publication in a professional journal, some of its recommendations are not applicable when writing a term paper. Students are advised that the guidelines in this document take priority over those in the APA Manual and should be followed when writing a term paper in the Department of Nutrition, Food Science and Packaging. By practicing the writing guidelines in this document, students will learn to… access computer and periodical sources to choose and develop a term paper topic interpret and use research terminology use APA format for citing original research in text access pertinent information in the APA Manual and apply it to a term paper format a document for writing a term paper create an adequately referenced term paper outline
