Get ready, APA (7th ed.) is here!

The 7th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA) was released in October 2019. Here at Charles Sturt we have been busy preparing for the switch from APA (6th ed.). Here’s what you need to know:

  • From Session 1 2020 (202030), Charles Sturt will switch to APA (7th ed.).
  • The Referencing Page will have everything you need for study in APA (7th and 6th eds.). For students in 202030 subjects, double check with your lecturers which version of APA you should use in assessments.
  • The APA 7th edition publication manual is available at your campus library right now! You can also access reference examples online through Primo Search.
  • For EndNote users, the APA 7th style download is available. This version of the download has been adapted and tested by Charles Sturt Librarians. For information on how to download a new output style, click here.
  • If you use another referencing tool such as RefWorks or Mendeley, keep an eye out for APA 7th in your style output options.
