APA Style Format

APA 7th edition

The 7th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association was published in October 2019.

As of February 2020, the Purdue OWL (online writing lab) now also has a guide for APA 7th edition. 

The library's databases generate citations automatically for sources that you find in them. Databases from EBSCOhost have switched to APA 7th, but databases from other companies are still using APA 6th. Regardless of what format they're using, citations that are generated automatically always need to be checked for accuracy since they commonly have small errors. 

Ask your instructors whether they would like you to use APA 6th edition or APA 7th edition.
