In 2020, APA released its first new edition in almost a decade. USM Libraries has updated resources available to guide you in using the 7th edition. The most updated edition is the preferred style and is the style generated automatically by citation tools in resources like OneSearch and EBSCO.
Many of our databases provide you with help formatting your citations according to APA, MLA, or other citation styles. In the EBSCO databases (CINAHL, PsycInfo, Academic Search Complete), look for the CITE icon to the right of the database record.
In PubMed, look for the 'Cite' button to the right of the search results or the database record.
