How do I write the date in the body of my paper? The teacher wants it in APA.
If the date is in an in-text citation, it would be placed at the end of the sentence like this, in parentheses, before the period: (Author's Last Name, Year, Page Number). If the date is in the actual text of your paper, you would write it out like this: February 16, 2013.

What is "truncation?" This database says you can use it.
Truncation is a method for phrasing your search terms to optimize results. The symbols used by databases may vary a bit, but here are some common ones: *, !, $, etc. These symbols act as wildcards. If, for example, you were searching for childhood illnesses, you could use truncation to encompass all forms of "child" and "illness" into one search term like this: child* illness*. This would instruct the database to include results for child, children, childhood, etc. as well as the plural for illness.
