The APA format is the official style guidelines of the American Psychological Association (APA) and is one of the most widely used methods for citing sources in a variety of academic fields, from psychology to the social sciences.
We receive a large number of requests for APA style proofreading and editing services every year, and have a number of editors in our team who have significant experience editing in this format.
If your university department or a journal in which you are seeking to publish requires APA style formatting, just let us know on the order form and we will be happy to help.
The APA style guidelines seek to establish standards of written communication with regards to:
- The organisation of content
- Writing style and tone
- Reference citing
- Manuscript preparation for publishing

Here are three recent testimonials from previous clients of our proofreading services for APA style format:
“I had the goal of being published in a specific leading journal in my field before I began my research. I was aware that they required APA style so I used a book to help me to try and follow this format in my writing.
I found it quite difficult, especially as English is my second language. When I finished the first draft of my manuscript, I sent it to Cambridge Proofreading and asked them to have an APA editor review it for me. When the paper was returned I was so relieved; everything was coherent with the APA guidelines and I didn’t have to do a thing more to it before sending it to the publisher. The editor did excellent work and I will use them again.”
– Dr Martinez, Mexico City
“Finding a proofreader that works to the APA style guidelines at a reasonable price is not easy. They tend to be a lot more expensive than other normal proofreading services. Fortunately, Cambridge offers this at their standard price. I found their editing to be very satisfactory.”
– Wei, University of Hong Kong
“Trying to adhere to APA style was very stressful for me. Now I have your [Cambridge Proofreading] APA editors to help me I feel much more relaxed.”
– Alexander, Moscow State University
