The most recent edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA) is the 7th edition, published in October 2019. More information about using the APA 7th style can be found on the APA Style and Grammar Guidelines website. You can also download and select the APA 7th output style if you are using EndNote software to generate your citations.
