According to Jones (1998), "Students often had difficulty using APA style, especially when it was their first time" (p. 199).
For longer than 40 words quotations, start the quotation on a new line, indented 1/2 inch from the left margin, i.e., in the same place you would begin a new paragraph. Type the entire quotation on the new margin, and indent the first line of any subsequent paragraph within the quotation 1/2 inch from the new margin.
According to Jones (1998), APA style is a difficult citation format for first-time learners.
