Citation 2020 Review

Citation 2020 Review2020 was a big year for citation! Both APA and AMA published new editions of their citation handbooks. Luckily, Himmelfarb has a number of resources to help keep you updated on the latest in citations.

APA
The APA published the 7th edition of their citation and formatting guidelines in late 2019, with a plan to fully transition in 2020. As of today, most 6th edition resources are still available, just archived.

You can find physical copies of the 7th edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association in our book stacks and first floor reference collection. You can also find format guides and examples for most common materials on our APA Research Guide. The APA Research Guide also includes links to useful resources like the Purdue Online Writing Lab’s (OWL) APA Guide and a host of official APA sites with useful updates and information.

Prefer a video tutorial to reading the manual or Research Guide? Every semester a Himmelfarb staff member hosts our “Demystifying APA Citation Style” workshop via WebEx. You can find the sign up on our Library Events page. If you are unable to attend the session, we publish a recording on our Library Tutorials page.

AMA
The American Medical Association published the 11th edition of their citation and formatting guidelines in early 2020.

Himmelfarb provides online access to the AMA Manual of Style 11th edition, as well as a physical copy located in the first floor reference collection. If you’re looking for quick information on citing a particular type of resource, our AMA Research Guide has you covered. The Research Guide also includes links to other useful resources, like the AMA Style Insider, the official blog of the AMA Manual of Style.

As with APA, every semester a Himmelfarb staff member hosts our “Demystifying AMA Citation Style” workshop via WebEx. You can find the sign up on our Library Events page. If you are unable to attend the session, we publish a recording on our Library Tutorials page.
