Do I use the APA Style Guide 7th Edition or 6th Edition?
Last Updated: Feb 18, 2021     Views: 228

As of July 1, 2020, the University uses the 7th edition of the APA Style Guide for citations and references. The APA Style Blog - 7th Edition is also available in the library on the Research Databases page. This blog often covers more difficult to find information, like how to cite social media or quote a foreign language source, as well as reference and in-text citation examples.

Curious about the differences between the two editions? See the blog entry What’s New in the Seventh Edition Publication Manual.

We also recommend reviewing the Center for Writing Excellence and, for doctoral students, the College of Doctoral Studies Central.
