apa.cls LaTeX2e document class; version 1.3.4 of December, 2008 apa.cls is a LaTeX2e class file that makes your document conform to the American Psychological Association (APA) Publication Manual (Fifth Edition, 2001) specifications for manuscripts or to the APA journal look found in journals like the Journal of Experimental Psychology. In addition, it provides a regular LaTeX-like output with a few enhancements and APA-motivated changes. This is a document *class* which uses (and modifies) other packages to achieve strictly defined formatting results and also uses the apacite package (sty & bst) for citations and references. If you only want APA-like citation for other kinds of documents use apacite.sty with an appropriate class. In particular, apa.cls is *NOT* appropriate for your thesis; don't even consider using it for that purpose. In order to use this document class you need some packages that may not be present in your LaTeX distribution. Please read apacls.txt carefully to understand what you need to install and what is possible with apa.cls, then read examples.txt carefully to understand how to use apa.cls (macros and instructions). Check out apaexample.tex, a minimal example file that produces actual manuscript-like output. apa.cls is not in any way connected to, endorsed by, or probably known at all at the American Psychological Association. APA does not even accept manuscript submissions in LaTeX source. The author of apa.cls has made every effort to achieve typesetting results conforming to the APA manual, because he uses it for his manuscripts. However, he is not responsible if the editor does not approve of a manuscript typeset with apa.cls, if your computer blows up while processing your manuscript with apa.cls, or for anything else that may go wrong with apa.cls, or with anything else for that matter.
