The APA writing style has been adopted as the official style for many disciplines and is being used by writers all over the world.

APA rules, as detailed in the <a href="">Publication Manual </a>, give solid writing guidance with respect to power, simplicity and concision.

According to these guidelines, also very clearly detailed and explained in <a href="<>">Owl Purdue, an invaluable aid when learning to write in APA, all sources of research for a paper have to be very clearly and correctly cited.

Citation both in-text and in the reference list at the end of a particular document in question has to be done in a certain way, depending on the type of resources used.

Government documents and reports/ guidelines by private or professional organisations have to be cited in a specific way.

The National Association of Social Workers (NASW) is an organisation for professional individuals in the field of counselling and social work.

It was established in 1955 and provides practice standards, ethical and career development guidelines for members. The official Code of Ethics, a Guide to the correct Everyday, or daily, Professional Conduct of all Social Workers, provided by the NASW must be cited properly in all publications, reports, articles and research.

As such, the NASW has to be cited both in-text and in reference lists as follows:

Workers, N. A. (2008). NASW Code of Ethics (Guide to etc, the full phrase underlined above must be stated). Washington, DC: NASW.

Particular sections used from within this document, for instance the section about Conflicts of Interests within the Ethical Standards, may be cited thus:

Workers, N. A. (2008). NASW Code of Ethics (Guide to etc, the full phrase underlined above must be stated). (Ethical Standards 1, Social Workers' Ethical Responsibilities to Clients; 1.06, Conflicts of Interest). Washington, DC: NASW
