APA Revision

Thanks to Sheila Kirven, Education Services Librarian of the Congressman Frank J. Guarini Library at New Jersey City University for the following post:

This news from the Chronicle of Higher Education has been on many lists today.
Hell hath no fury like a style-guide user scorned. When the American Psychological Association published the sixth edition of its Publication Manual, in July, it didn't take long for APA style mavens to pick up on errors and inconsistencies—and to start complaining on e-mail lists and blogs.

The objections became so loud that the organization has now agreed to replace the offending copies with a corrected second printing...

The cumulative outrage finally carried the day. The association has just announced that it will "recycle" remaining softcover copies of the sixth edition. Anyone who gets in touch with the association between November 2 and December 15 and asks for a replacement will receive a free copy of the emended second printing, according to Rhea Faberman, director of communications. (She recommends that people contact the APA's service center to submit those requests.)
Here is the information for the APA Service Center as posted by Suzy Westenkirchner:

Anyone who gets in touch with the association between November 2 and December 15 and asks for a replacement will receive a free copy of the amended second printing, according to Rhea Faberman, director of communications.
