Where to Purchase the APA 7th Edition Manual

The APA 7th edition manual is available through the APA Style website in spiral-bound, paperback, hardcover, and ebook versions (librarians like the spiral version). Other online book vendors only offer print versions of the manual. APA does not offer an institutional ebook version at this time but it is under consideration.

The St. Kate's Bookstore will only carry copies of the 7th edition if it is requested for a course. Faculty who plan to adopt the manual for a course can request a desk or exam copy through APA.
