American Psychological Association Manual (6th edition)

The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association is the style manual of choice for those taking business classes at Athens State University. It provides invaluable guidance on all aspects of the writing process, from using in-text citations and creating reference lists to choosing words to make your writing free of bias.

The 6th edition offers new and expanded instruction on publication ethics, journal article reporting standards (both print and online) as well as website citation formats.

There are several copies of the APA manual on the second floor of the library. Please ask a reference librarian if you need assistance.
