APA or MLA in Brief, on Posters

The online writing lab (OWL) at Purdue has just issued posters summarizing the key features of APA and MLA format.  You can print them out in assorted sizes:

APA Poster: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/23/

APA: “Oops”

Use APA style?

If you didn’t rush out to buy the new 6th edition of the Publication Manual, you might want to wait for the second printing.

Turns out the style guide contains a number of typos and other errors, as Inside Higher Ed reportsAPA has downplayed the mistakes, which appear most serious in three sample papers.  You can access corrected versions of those and a list of errors at the APA site.

APA Rubric

As I compile a list of links to writing rubrics, I found this guide from Framingham State College concentrating on APA style (6th edition).  Looks useful.
