For those of you who use APA 6th Citation Style, please note that the American Psychological Association has announced that it will release the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association Seventh Edition (2020) in October 2019.
The Librarians will work to develop updated documentation to comply with the new guidelines
"To steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own : use (another's production) without crediting the source. To commit literary theft : present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source" - Webster's Dictonary
Whenever you quote, paraphrase, or summarize a source, you will need to use proper bibliographic citation using in-text citation (MLA or APA citation) or footnotes (Chicago).
The APA Style Blog is the official companion to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, Sixth Edition. It's run by a group of experts who work with APA Style every day. They publish weekly posts to talk about what we love—writing, publishing, and APA Style. They explore what APA Style is and how it works in a variety of areas, including reference citations of every sort, grammar and usage, the publication process, and social media.
