APA admits errors in their new manual – BibMe unaffected

The America Psychological Association has just admitted that the newly published 6th edition of their APA Publication Manual contained a large number of errors, including inaccurate citation examples (for more information, including how to acquire a corrected copy, please visit It’s important that you know this if you are using the new manual to cite your references.

I’d like to stress that BibMe is technically not affected by these errors, as we have not yet implemented or begun to implement the rules/guidelines for APA 6. We are still following APA 5, but we will begin the process of updating to APA 6 once we have our copy of the style manual replaced. Updates on our progress will be posted periodically here on our blog.

    hey guys, this is to all the bloggers and the makers of bibme. i have 2 seperate projects that both need a bibliography. i can use the 1st bibliography with the second one added on to it for my second project. my question is… can i add different citations to my 1st bibliography, from a compleyely different bibliography? if so, how?

    I am Maltese and I frequently make use of Unicode non-English characters in my bibliographies. I have tried BibMe and it works fine online (the Unicode characters appear properly through the UTF-8 settings). However when I download the RTF file these characters are not reproduced properly. Is there a way around this?
    Here’s an example in MLA format:
    Friggieri, Oliver. L-Istorja tal-Poeżija Maltija. Malta: PIN, 2001. Print.
