The American Psychological Association (APA) published the 6th edition of their style manual in late 2009. T
The AUT Library and Student Learning Centre support the APA 6th referencing style.
The APA 6th style available for download on the official EndNote website has a number of deficiencies. AUT Library staff have modified it to produce references that comply with the APA 6th edition rules as closely as possible.
Most schools and departments at AUT use the APA referencing style but there may be times when another style is required.
We advise students to carefully check the coursework referencing requirements for their programme.
should consult their supervisor about an appropriate referencing style.
submitting papers for publication may need to use another reference style to meet the requirements of the publisher.
If you need to use a non-APA style, it is likely that EndNote can handle this for you. However, you should check the reference list resulting from using EndNote to ensure the entries comply with the rules of your chosen style. The AUT Library collection includes a few guides to other styles but these are not necessarily the most up-to-date version so an online guide would usually be preferable.
For assistance with locating a suitable online guide to other referencing styles, consult the Liaison Librarian for your subject.
We have updated our APA 6th style to improve the way it works with EndNote X7.
It is now called APA 6th - AUT X7 and should be included in the EndNote X7 program installed on AUT computers and when you download it from AUTonline or the IT Knowledge Base.
