When in doubt about how to cite APA or which edition to use, ask your instructor or a librarian for help. Most of this guide follows the 6th edition, but if you’re looking for guidance on the 7th edition for your paper, these are some notable changes:
- When making an APA book citation do not include the publisher’s location. This also applies to book chapter references
- When making a journal citation:
- DOIs are formatted as URLs (i.e., https://doi.org/xxx)
- Don’t include the label “DOI” before the DOI url
- Include the issue number if one exists
- When making a full APA website citation, do not include the words “Retrieved from” before the URL
- When citing an ebook, don’t indicate the format, platform, or device (e.g., Kindle)
- Figures are formatted more like notes with a number and title at the top, and a note under the figure/table instead of a caption
- Don’t include running heads on student papers, except when your instructor asks for it by your instructor
- There are new guidelines in the 7th edition that didn’t exist before. This includes new sections and examples on:
- Annotated bibliographies
- Citing social media posts, podcasts, and other modern sources
- There’s only a single space after sentences
