Introduction to APA 7th ed. Style

Welcome to the APA Help Guide.  APA is a style of writing and formatting created and updated by the American Psychological Association (APA).  APA style contains guidelines for formatting and structuring research papers, reference citations, case studies, literature reviews, term papers and dissertations.


The 7th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association was published in October 2019. It is primarily used by disciplines in the business, social sciences, health, and education fields. The official guide is published by the American Psychological Association.


We encourage you to contact a campus librarian if you need additional assistance.
