The American Psychological Association (APA) announced a revised version of their Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association in a 7th edition last Fall. The APA announced that the new version would supersede the 6th edition during Spring 2020 semester, and most GRCC academic departments decided to make the move to the 7th edition this semester.
At GRCC, APA Style is typically used by: Business; Communication; Criminal Justice; Dental Assisting; Dental Hygiene; Exercise Science; Gerontology; Medical Assistant; Nursing; Occupational Therapy Assistant; Pharmacy Technician; Phlebotomy; Psychology; Radiologic Technology; Social Work; and, Sterile Processing.
Thanks goes to librarian Natalie Karsten who updated the Citing Sources Subject Guide with APA 7 rules for reference pages and in-text citations, and links to sources that will help students and their professors. Citing Sources is appended to almost all Library Subject Guides – so it’s easy to find.
If you need help citing, the easiest way to get it is to use Ask-a-Librarian.
