PERRLA for Word now has the ability to create Research Papers (normal PERRLA Papers) & Discussion Posts!
What is a Discussion Post?
Discussion Posts are APA & MLA formatted papers that are tailored to only include the information you need for your class's online forums (discussion boards).
Discussion Posts include the paper's body and Reference section on a single page. This makes it easy to copy and paste all of your paper's content into a discussion forum in one step.
Discussion Posts do not include Title Pages, Tables of Content, or Abstracts. However, you have access to the same powerful Reference, Citation, Table, Figure, and Heading features - just like always.
What is a Research Paper then?
Research Papers are the traditional paper that PERRLA has been helping students create for 20 years.
Research Papers include a title page, the paper's body, and a separate References page. They can also include a Table of Content, Abstracts, and Annotations.
Anything else I need to know?
Discussion Posts are still PERRLA Papers and work in the exact same way as traditional PERRLA Papers (Research Papers). They show up with your existing PERRLA Papers inside the My PERRLA Papers tab. And, they are still normal Word documents that you can share with your professor or friends.
