Below is a highlight of major changes between the 6th and 7th edition of APA Citation Style.
The APA Style website has provided a document that captures all updates.
In-text citations with more than 3 authors use et al.
References include up to 20 authors names.
Publisher location no longer required
'Retrieved from' no longer used to present URL
DOI listed with 'https://doi.org/' instead of 'DOI:'
If articles use an older format, edit DOIs so all references reflect the current standard as in the example above.
If there is no DOI for an academic article, full publication details suffice. URL information is not provided.
Type not required:
Writing inclusively and without bias is the new standard, and APA’s new publication manual contains a separate chapter on this topic.
The guidelines provided by APA help authors reduce bias around topics such as gender, age, disability, racial and ethnic identity, and sexual orientation, as well as being sensitive to labels and describing individuals at the appropriate level of specificity. Some examples include:
