Errors in the 6th edition, First Printing of the Publication Manual of the APA

Errors in the 6th edition, First Printing of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association.

The UCSD Social Sciences & Humanities Library was recently informed that the First Printing of the Publication Manual of the APA contains numerous errors. The copies of the First Printing edition housed in SSHL have been labeled to inform our patrons about this. We have also RUSH ordered copies of the Second Printing, which does not contain the errors.

We realize there are many students, faculty and staff on campus who use the APA publication manual, hence this notice. Should you own copies of the First Printing and/or are requiring your students to use the APA publication manual during the next few weeks of the quarter, please inform your students. The Libraries have also notified the UCSD Bookstore of the errors contained in the First Printing.

For a listing of the errors, please refer to the APA’s list of “Corrections to First Printing (July 2009)”
There is also a listing of the Sample Papers, and the Supplemental Materials.
