APA Style Journal Article Reporting Standards (APA Style JARS) are a set of guidelines for information to include in papers reporting quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods research. In this post, we share resources to help instructors and students navigate and use APA Style JARS, recognize the importance of transparency in research, and understand the structure of a behavioral science journal article.
APA Style JARS can be used at all stages of research. For reviewers, editors, and readers, APA Style JARS help ensure that the information communicated in a manuscript is clear and understandable. Instructors and students can use APA Style JARS as teaching and learning tools for conducting high-quality research and determining what information to report in scholarly papers. By using APA Style JARS, all authors can make their research clearer, more accurate, and more transparent for readers.
