Inside Higher Ed: Correcting APA Style Guide

In an article “Correcting a Style Guide” in today’s Inside Higher Ed, reporter Jennifer Epstein writes:

Scholars turn to style manuals for guidance in authoring error-free manuscripts, but what happens when the manual itself is laden with errors?

Users of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association are trying to answer that question now, after the APA last week released dozens of corrections to the first printing of the book’s sixth edition. In addition to being used in psychology, the manual is also used in sociology, economics, business, nursing and justice administration, among other fields.

Readers can find four pages of corrections in PDF format, in addition to four corrected sample papers.
