Q. When is the 7th edition of the APA manual coming out?
When will students need to use the 7th edition of APA?
The American Psychological Association is publishing the 7th edition of the style manual, and it will be available to purchase in October 2019.
The College of Education (undergraduate, M.Ed. and Ed.D. programs) will continue to use the 6th edition of the APA manual through April 2020 (at least).
Librarians will update our print and online APA resources to the 7th edition once it is released, but that process will take time since we don’t yet know about the changes. We will continue to provide access to 6th edition resources as long as CU programs require use of that edition.
Check with your professor about whether they require the 6th or 7th edition for your assignment.
