You'll be citing it in a similar way to other books:
Author. (date). Title. Publication place: Publisher.
Here's an example:
American Psychiatric Association. (2013). Diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders: DSM-5. Washington, D.C: American Psychiatric Association.
- Because the author of the work is also the publisher, the repetition of "American Psychiatric Association" is redundant. It need only state "Author" as publisher. In addition, the title should read "The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (5th ed.)." Everything else is correct.
- It's actually published by American Psychiatric Publishing, so the last part should read "American Psychiatric Publishing" not "American Psychiatric Association"
- Should it also read Arlington, VA instead of Washington, DC? The citation suggests this in the book as well.
- The DSM-5 is published by the American Psychiatric Association.
- American Psychiatric Publishing is the publishing house owned by the APA. You can use either "Author" as the publisher, to show the APA, or American Psychiatric Publishing. They are both correct.
- APA is confusing
- I took this from the book, hope it will be helpful.
The correct citation for this book is American Psychiatric Association: Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition. Arlington, VA, American Psychiatric Association, 2013.
