The following link from Purdue university is very useful for APA formatting and style: https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/apa_style/apa_formatting_and_style_guide/general_format.html
The paper must be an original work. Your source of information should be taken from peer-reviewed articles published in scientific journals, books, and reliable online sources (typically government or scientific society). There is a zero-tolerance policy for Plagiarism. Copying materials from the Internet or other sources without citing the source is a serious offense.
