Nico's Formatting Tips for APA references

To get a hanging indent in word 2003 or newer: highlight the entire reference, right click, click paragraph, there should be two pull-down menus. Click the top one, choose "hanging."


Here is a list of the suggested journals for the course. These are journals that are "safe" to use, but may exclude some Communication journals (there are a lot!), so please feel free to ask. Generally speaking, any journal sponsored by the National Communication Association or the International Communication Association is okay to use. Please note that many of these journals also carry quantitative articles!
