Begin in your Mendeley Desktop software.

You need to:

  1. Install the new version of APA in Mendeley (or see if it is installed already)
  2. Make APA 7th your default citation style in both Mendeley and Word

Step 1: Install the new version of APA (or see if it is installed already)

  • In Mendeley, select 'View' and then 'Citation Style'.
    • If APA 7th is not already available, click on 'More Styles'.
    • If it is already available, skip to Step 2

 

  • Start entering a search for ‘American Psychological’.
  • Select the 7th edition
  • Click on the 'Install' button

 

 

Step 2: making APA 7th your default citation style in both Mendeley and Word:

  • In Mendeley, go back to 'View' > 'Citation Style'
  • Select ‘American Psychological Association 7th edition’.
