Tools for Improving Writing
Most of OPWL classes require students to use APA style for writing in-text citations and references in their term papers. Many OPWL-related academic journals and trade magazines use APA style as well. Students are encouraged to purchase a copy of the APA style manual. Students may use software such as EndNote to collect and organize their own bibliographies.
