We have a new update to share with you all today. All of our users can now add parenthetical citations to their bibliographies. You can find the parenthetical citation link in your bibliography. First, you start off at creating your citation using the correct source. When you add the citation to the bibliography, you will see it load in your bibliography section. The parenthetical citation link is located next to the “Copy & Paste” link. If this is your first experience with seeing this section, you can also edit the citation, copy and paste it into your processor of choice or delete the citation. When you click on the “Parenthetical” link, your screen will load with options on what information you want to add to the parenthetical citation. After adding the Contributor, Title and Pages, click “Copy to Clipboard” and add the parenthetical citation into your document. What do you think of the latest parenthetical citation update? Let us know by leaving a comment in the comment section below!

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 http://apastyle.apa.org/manual/corrections-faqs.aspx). 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.
