APA 6: Corrections Now Available

As software is released in versions, we've become accustomed to products improving after their release. The APA Publication Manual joins that tradition. Actually, it already was in the tradition: after the 5th edition was published, APA offered a list of corrections and then inserted the corrections in subsequent printings of the book. This year, the same is being promised for the 6th edition.

The list of corrections is available on the APA Style web site. The second printing (with corrections) of the book will be available to requesters after November 2 (for a limited time). Check out the APA web site for more information.

For a much more instructive (and entertaining) introduction to APA 6, read the APA Style Blog. If you scroll to October 8, you can learn more about the corrections to the text. But the real treasure is in the informal explanations of APA rules.
