For the rest of this academic year, most departments in the University are still using APA 6th Edition referencing. None are changing to 7th Edition this year. Ebsco databases, including Discovery, are now showing references formatted in APA 7th Edition by default. For the correct APA edition style please check our APA 6th edition guidance, either from the referencing booklet or the Referencing@Portsmouth website. 

If you need any help with any aspect of referencing, please email or chat to us online.  Our enquiries team will be happy to help.
