Also, this guide was originally created for Summer 2020's SPED 6311 taught by Dr. Landmark. Although the guide should prove useful for other SPED 6311 courses, this is not its original intention.
You can see all of our Education databases by visiting our Education Databases page.
Some recommended databases are available below.
[The dissertations database is listed below due to its value as a resource to mine information. If you can find a dissertation dealing with a similar topic, which is very likely considering the size of this database, you can mine its works cited page for your own use. This can sometimes prove incredibly valuable].
You will be expected to utilize the APA citation styles as you complete your coursework. For introductory information and examples, please view our APA Citations guide.
Also, please note that although there is not an online full-text version of the official APA guide, Newton Gresham Library and SHSU-The Woodlands Center have copies that you can use. Also, the APA has published an APA Style Guide to Electronic References that can be accessed online. This guide will provide you all the information you need when citing electronic information.
Please note this information is for APA 6th edition. APA 7th edition is similar, but does include some notable changes. For a concise explanation of the major changes, please see this rundown from Purdue OWL
