"Gather round, style hounds: the seventh edition of the American Psychological Association's Publication Manual...includes some (pretty) significant changes."--Inside Higher Ed

"One of the most popular guides for academic writing standards across the curriculum. For many editors, faculty, and students, this means mastering new rules in short order... all appearances indicate that the changes will be mostly user-friendly...The worst thing about change is often the unknown. This quick glimpse at what the APA has in store offers encouraging news about the road ahead."--Faculty Focus

"I strongly encourage you to dig into the rich resource of the 7th Edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. I am thoroughly energized about the ways this guide can push language forward." --American Library Association's Rainbow Round Table

"The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA) has gone through it's first update in a decade. One of the major changes in this seventh edition is a full embracing of the singular 'they' pronoun.... This full acceptance in the APA style guide is major. And wonderful." --Medium

"An endorsement from the APA is a big deal for the singular 'they.' The APA is the largest scientific and professional organization of psychologists in the United States, with over 118,000 members. The Publication Manual is used by all writers, researchers, editors, students, and educators in a wide variety of disciplines, so this clarification has the potential to significantly expand the use of inclusive language." --Out
