APA Style (7th ed.) Help Guide

The APA Style (7th ed.) Help Guide is a document you can download and read if you prefer reading to viewing a video. The document is formatted to the APA Style rules, so it also serves to provide examples of formatting. The only deviations from the APA Style rules are the document is set to 1.5 line spacing to make it less expensive to print.

Please note that this resource does not replace the APA Style manual; rather, it is intended to provide a general introduction to the 7th edition APA Style rules. The comprehensive source for APA Style (7th ed.) information remains the 7th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, which was published in 2020.
