[APA] is providing additional free publishing resources beyond those we previously announced in March. We hope these services help to provide both professional and personal assistance as you navigate this pandemic. …
To help students in need of APA Style guidance, tutorials and quick guides adapted from Academic Writer®, APA’s tool for teaching and learning effective writing, are now freely available through July 1, 2020. The Basics of Seventh Edition APA Style tutorial will stay on the site for free after that date.
