The sixth edition APA Style blog was launched in June 2009, on the same day that the sixth edition of the Publication Manual was published. In the 10 years that the blog was active, we discussed all aspects of APA Style, and we answered thousands of questions (in nearly 5,000 comments).
Those original posts and comment conversations are still available in this archive.
We will keep this archive available until further notice.
