Purdue Owl (The Owl or Purdue Owl [OWL is an acronym for Online Writing Lab]) is part of the Department of English at Purdue University. The Purdue OWL is one of a doctoral writer’s best friends and something that should be bookmarked or, if you use Google for your browser, always up and readily accessible. The OWL is a quick resource for APA, MLA, and Chicago formatting. (http://owl.english.purdue.edu)
The other resource for doctoral writers that I recommend keeping readily accessible is the APA Style Blog (http://blog.apastyle.org/). Many issues are covered in the blog that are not covered in the manual.
As your blog hostess, I suppose I should tell you something you would not find on LinkedIn or a curriculum vita, so I shall. I am an animal lover, a semi-professional photographer, a seamstress, and a career student who just happens to have the most amazing teenage granddaughters ever born! My other business is a writing service for children: www.atlantapawpals.com
Please feel free to ask for elaboration of any issue you see in this blog. If you want to know more about something that is not listed, please email me. firstname.lastname@example.org If I do not have the answer, I will find someone who does.
