7th Edition of the APA Publication Manual is Here!

The American Psychological Association has released the latest edition, the seventh edition,  of the Publication Manual.

Highlights include:

Full color throughout.

An updated chapter with guidelines for writing without bias that address age, disability, gender, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, and intersectionality .

A new chapter about APA’s updated journal article reporting standards.

Two paper formats: one for students and one for professionals. The student paper format does not require a running head nor does it require an abstract. The required content on the title page differs as well.

Best practices for ethical writing, including discussions on avoiding plagiarism and updated guidance on navigating the publication process and disseminating research findings.

100+ new reference examples, including coverage for websites, social media and classroom resources, plus more than 40 new sample tables and figures.

Considerable information on punctuation, capitalization, spelling, and the use of italics.

Detailed information about how to report statistical data.

The APA will continue to provide support and resources for the 6th edition until August 2020 at which time they expect the transition to the new edition will be complete.

The library has three copies of the manual: 2 at the Research and Information Desk (for internal use only) and one in the stacks available for check out. Come in to the library and look at the new, the 7th edition of the APA Publication Manual.
