APA-6: A New Edition of the Style Manual

It doesn't happen often, but when a style manual revises, there's a thud of tossed books heard round the world.

This week the revision comes for the APA Publication Manual. The 6th edition has been launched, along with a new companion piece, the Concise Rules of APA Style.

For a chapter-by-chapter outline of what's new in the 6th edition, go to http://www.apastyle.org/manual/whats-new.aspx
