The content must be presented clearly. It must present a background of the main topic to be discussed, that is, indicate the state of the art or the historical background of the subject to be discussed. An introduction should also be made to the topic or the main question, which is the one that primarily motivates, and already presents, the purpose of the text. The APA standards require these differentiations that must be evident in the text, even if the words are not placed explicitly, indicating which part is which in the text.
After this, the objectives must be written, the content of which refers to what the purposes or what you want to prove with the development of the research. Then it is necessary to inquire about the question, concern or topic, and thus the theoretical framework is built, which is the theoretical signaling of the topic that is interested in treating. It is the sustenance of other sources, of other opinions on the subject that is being treated. In this section, the use of APA rules is essential, since special care must be taken in the quotations and in the concatenation of our ideas with those of others, so as not to incur theft of intellectual property.
Each idea that is copied verbatim or paraphrased must have its respective credit. For this reason, it is essential that as the document is created, the citations are annexed. Let us remember that there are different citations depending on whether it is a verbatim quote, a paraphrase, and that it is cited differently if there are one, two, three and up to six authors. Let us always remember that the APA standards give the text and a structure, they are also relevant when it comes to properly citing other documents or writings, which are used as a source of knowledge in their own text.
Then, the specific topic, question or hypothesis and the general topic that the entire writing will deal with is presented. After this, the topic is developed, it is concluded and it is finalized with the bibliographic references presented throughout the text. Depending on the requirements of the educational institution, other sections are used in the content, depending on the type of content required to be performed. The APA standards are par excellence, the method most used in universities and higher education centers around the world. The previous explanation applies more or less to all types of documents. In turn, it must be taken into account that each text has its requirements and specific content for each occasion.
