Have you had a chance to check out the new APA Style website? With the launch of the 7th edition of their Publication Manual, the APA revamped their style website, making it easier than ever before to access the help materials you need.
Here are a few highlights:
Bias-Free Language: Access this page to find general principles for reducing bias in your writing as well as a number of specific examples addressing individual characteristics such as racial and ethnic identity, disabilities, sexual orientation, and more.
Reference Examples: Connect to this page to see common reference examples in various formats such as textual works, audiovisual materials, online media, and even data sets.
Paper Format: Struggling with the minutia of formatting an APA paper? Check out this resource for guidance on things like margins, font size, creating a title page, and more. You’ll even find sample papers to help guide you through the process.
Instructional Aids: If you’re looking for quick reference guides to save or bookmark, be sure to check out the page with ‘handouts and guides’. You’ll find checklists, activities, guide documents, and infographics to help demystify all things APA.
If you’re having trouble finding the specific guidance you need, make sure to give the APA Style Blog a try. Style experts use this space to make posts about common questions or new formats so it’s a great supplement to the full site.
