APA Style Guide Book Cover Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association

The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association is the style manual of choice for  writers, editors, students, and educators in the social and behavioral sciences.  It provides invaluable  guidance on all aspects of the writing process, from the ethics of authorship to the word choice that  best reduces bias in language. 

Well-known for its authoritative and easy-to-use reference and citation system, the Publication  Manual also offers guidance on choosing the headings, tables, figures, and tone that will result in  strong, simple, and elegant scientific communication.

The seventh edition was released in October 2019. This page contains information about the updates to the guide as well as effective ways to use the new information in student papers. Please contact the library if you have any questions.
