Some of the common errors students do while writing in APA style are running head and page numbers, abstract, keywords, in-text citations and other small errors. Many of the students forget to add a running head or add it in an improper format. Many students also fail to add an abstract. This is why it is best to hire formatting services wherein the professionals can ensure that your work carries the perfect formatting as per specified by your university. Keywords must be added right below the abstract which are very important because they are used in search engines and indexing services. In-text citations must be properly place with parenthesis and spellings. A sample bibliography example is given here below.
