Benefits of Academic Writer

Academic Writer (formerly APA Style CENTRAL) offers three key features:

  • Learning Center - Access a digital media library that includes quick guides, tutorials, instructional videos, sample papers, and other resources on APA style. These resources can be linked or embedded within your Learning Management System.
  • Reference Center - Offers tools to help with creating citations and managing your own personal database of sources.  
  • Writing Center - Write essays in the cloud (like Google Docs or Microsoft 365) using various templates that pre-format the APA style (including the title page, sub-headings, and references). Also allows for collaboration features with other users.
