Publication Manual Now Available From the Amazon Kindle® Store

Already available in three print versions — paperback, hardcover or lay-flat spiral binding — the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 6th Edition is now available from Amazon's Kindle store as a Print Replica book.

For the first time, the Sixth Edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association® is available today as an e-book from the Amazon Kindle Store.

A perennial best seller in its previous five editions and the definitive reference source of its type worldwide, the Publication Manual is the style manual of choice for writers, editors, students and educators in the social and behavioral sciences. It provides invaluable guidance on all aspects of the writing process, from the ethics of authorship to the word choice that best reduces bias in language. Well-known for its authoritative and easy-to-use reference and citation system, the Publication Manual also offers guidance on choosing the headings, tables, figures and tone that will result in strong, simple and elegant scientific communication.

Already available in three print versions — paperback, hardcover or lay-flat spiral binding — the Publication Manual is now available from Amazon’s Kindle store as a Print Replica book. Each page in a Print Replica book looks just like it would in the print version, with the same words and images in the same position, while incorporating unique Kindle features such as annotation, highlighting and advanced zoom and pan functions. Page numbers correspond to the print versions, so students and psychologists can easily find the information they need referenced in the APA Style® blog, online style tutorials or the classroom.

Kindle Print Replica books can be read on Kindle Fire tablets, Kindle for PC, Kindle for Android Tablets, Kindle for Mac or Kindle for iPad reading apps. All apps are available for free download from Amazon. Progress can be synchronized across multiple apps, so users never have to worry about losing their notes when switching devices.

APA Publisher Gary R. VandenBos, PhD, commented, “We are delighted to expand the means by which individual users can now access the Publication Manual. While demand for print editions remains strong, we recognize that faculty, students and publishing professionals seek the portability and flexibility of accessing the Manual via their electronic devices as well — reflecting the importance of APA Style in every aspect of writing and publishing in the behavioral and social sciences and in many other disciplines such as business, nursing, allied health, journalism and communications.”
