Effective writing is critical for success in many academic and professional pursuits. APA Style is a set of guidelines for clear and precise scholarly communication that helps authors, both new and experienced, achieve excellence in writing. As new APA Style products are announced, we will update this page.
APA released the Inclusive Language Guidelines—a place to find the most relevant language to use when communicating about equity, diversity, and inclusion. The goal is to reduce bias in language and avoid perpetuating harm to marginalized communities by assisting writers in using inclusive and appropriate language in conversation and writing. The guidelines draw heavily on APA Style’s comprehensive bias-free language guidelines as well as APA’s own policy statements and practice guidelines and psychological research in journals and books. Learn more about the guidelines in this blog post.
