Dr Paper makes it easy to format documents and references in APA Style (5th or 6th edition). Recommended by teachers, librarians, and fellow students to help you focus on the content of your paper.

Create documents and references formatted for APA 6th (or 5th) edition guidelines with just a few clicks. Dr Paper takes care of style details (margins, cover pages, page numbers, etc.) so you can concentrate on your writing.

1. Create a Document

  • Dr Paper lets you create documents in APA, MLA, or Turabian format. Just click Dr Paper, New Document, and choose the style you need for your paper.

  • Then, just answer a few questions about the author and title of the paper v

  • Click Next, and Dr Paper creates a formatted document, ready for you to start writing.

2. Write The Paper
Once you've created a properly formatted document, you'll be able to concentrate on writing your paper.

As you write, you'll be able to use Dr Paper's built in Styles to correctly format special kinds of text (such as section Heading and quotations). Just position the cursor, and click the Style you need.

The correct formatting for your cover page, paragraph spacing, margins, page header and number, font, etc., are all embedded in the document, so you won't have to spend valuable time tracking down arcane instructions (like how to indent a paragraph or how to get the page number to land in the right spot, just 1/2 inch from the top of the page) in the Word help files.

3. Format references
Dr Paper makes writing references in APA, MLA, or Turabian style incredibly easy. First, you'll click Dr Paper, Reference (see the screenshot for step 1) to use CiteWrite (Dr Paper's Reference formatter). For each work you need to cite in the paper, you'll just add a CiteWrite notecard, with information on the author, year of publication, title, and so forth.

Once you have all the information entered, CiteWrite turns the information on your notecards into properly formatted and alphabetized references, with just a few clicks. It couldn't be easier!
