APA Style Guide

The APA 7th edition was released in October, 2019. If you're not sure what edition to use in your paper, consult with your program or department.

Overview of Changes

  • Websites: you no longer include "retrieved from" before the URL unless you are including a retrieval date as well.
  • Books: you no longer list the city and state of the publisher, only the publisher name.
  • eBooks: you no longer list format or platform (such as Kindle).
  • DOIs: include them as a URL (https://doi.org/...), not as DOI: xxx
  • Multiple authors/in-text citation: three or more, list the first with et al.
