Do I use the APA Style Guide 7th Edition or 6th Edition?

Where can I purchase the APA Manual?

This is a great question! 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 difficult-to-find information, such as how to cite social media or quote a foreign language source. It also includes 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.

The APA Manual is not available for reading online, but you can purchase it directly from the APA Style Blog, the UOPX Bookstore, or from an online retailer.

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