Sample papers in the first printing of the sixth edition contained errors. APA staff posted all of the corrections online for free in a single document on October 1, 2009, and shortly thereafter alerted users to the existence of the corrections in an APA blog entry.  These errors attracted significant attention from the scholarly community and nearly two weeks later, on October 13, 2009, the article "Correcting a Style Guide" was published in the online newspaper Inside Higher Ed that included interviews with several individuals, one of whom described the errors as " egregious ".  All copies of the printing with errors were soon after recalled in 2009 (including those from major retailers such as ) and all manuals currently in circulation are unaffected.
The American Psychological Association (APA™) has developed rules for formatting a research paper that have been widely accepted worldwide, and are frequently the required format to use when submitting a paper for publication. This workshop series will guide you through the basics of formatting a research paper in “APA style,” following the rules set out in the 6th Edition of the “Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association."
