APA Style (6th ed)

Getting Started

The 7th Edition is Here!

The American Psychological Association (APA) released a new edition of the Publication Manual in October 2019. Copies of the new Publication Manual are now available on library shelves.

Access the library's online resources through our online APA Style (7th ed) guide.

About this Guide

This guide offers a variety of examples for the types of sources commonly used in academic assignments. Examples are based on our interpretation of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th edition. Capitalization and punctuation are important! Follow examples carefully.

Your professor may have different citing expectations than the rules outlined in this guide. Always check at the beginning of term and before starting assignments that the citing rules you are using are appropriate for your class.

Get Help

Tutoring and library staff can answer questions about citing your sources, and can help clarify citation rules. Our role is to help students learn how to cite. Students are responsible for proofreading their own citations.
