APA Manual 6th Edition – 1st Printing Exchange Program

Re-posted with permission from the Medicine Hat College Library Blog.

Did you buy a copy of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (6th ed.)? If you did, you might be entitled to exchange your first printing for a corrected version. You can also download a copy of the corrections that have been made to the manual.

In the first printing, there were numerous errors and oversights. The APA has tried to correct these things with a series of bulletins, but this did not please everyone. A Facebook group (and others) lobbied for an exchange of first printing manuals for new corrected versions. The lobbying was successful and you can exchange your first printing for a corrected new version. ACT NOW if you want to exchange your copy!

To get the exchange or updates, choose one of the following three options:


Contact the APA Service Center for more information. The APA Service Center can be reached at:1-800-374-2721, Monday–Friday, from 9:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. (EST). E-mail can be sent to: Once you have confirmed details with the APA, your copy must be sent in by December 15, 2009.


You can download a detailed corrections copy by clicking here. The copy is not of the whole book, just notes about the corrections.


You can also order a print version of the corrections. You will contact the APA Service Center using the same aforementioned contact information to order the print version of the corrections.
