APA Style Blog
The APA Style Blog is run by APA style professionals. It is a companion to the Publication Manual (6th ed.) and can be considered authoritative.
The information and examples on this site are based on the sixth edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. While APA can be very clear about some rules, others require interpretation. Alvin Sherman Library has worked to ensure that the examples and content on this site are consistent with APA guidelines, however students are ultimately responsible for their own citations and formatting.
