Academic Writer, formerly known as APA Style Central, provides teaching and learning resources to guide students, faculty, and researchers through all the stages of researching, writing, and research papers and citations in psychology and the other social sciences. Included are tutorials, paper-writing templates, style manuals, and journal publication information. More information on Academic Writer's resources can be found here.
To use Academic Writer fully, especially from within Canvas, students and faculty must first create a personal account at the Academic Writer website. Here's how you do that:
Whether you are at an on-campus or an off-campus computer, you must use the following link to be identified as a Piedmont College user. If you're off-campus, you cannot go to directly to the Academic Writer website and start account creation there.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT to note that you should use only these web browsers when working in Academic Writer: Chrome, Firefox, and Safari on either Windows or OS X computers. You should avoid the use of Internet Explorer altogether. Microsoft Edge should not be used either.
FACULTY, when writing the Academic Writer link into a document or embedding a link to the service in a Canvas page or any other webpage, you should use the link shown above and no other form of it.
If you would like to embed an Academic Writer page or module directly into Canvas, please contact one of the Library's staff for help doing so.
