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.
At GRCC, the APA (American Psychological Association) Style for citations and paper formatting is typically used by most of the Social Sciences, Business, Criminal Justice, and all the Health Professions departments. In October 2019, the APA introduced the 7th edition of the APA Publication Manual, which replaces the 6th edition published in 2009. Changes will roll out into database-formatted citations in Spring 2020. Use the 6th edition unless told differently by your instructor. Most departments are waiting until after Winter semester to move to the new edition. Click here OR here to find out more about upcoming changes.
