IMPORTANT NOTE: The APA has recently introduced a fifth edition of its publication manual. Among the most significant changes to the format introduced in the fifth edition are

1) the use of the hanging indent in the reference list and

2) the use of italics (rather than underlining) for all titles.

We have attempted to reflect these fifth edition changes on our website. You should also visit APA's official website for further descriptions of these changes.
