Q. How do I cite the DSM 5 in APA 7th edition style?

Answer

To cite the complete work in your reference section, use this format:
American Psychiatric Association. (2013). Diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders (5th ed.). https://doi.org/10.1176/appi.books.9780890425596

Note: Be sure to use hanging indents and double-spacing in your reference list, in accordance with APA format guidelines.
 

The basic in-text citation should look like this:
(American Psychiatric Association, 2013).

 

To cite an entry in the DSM-5, follow the basic format in this example for the entry Anxiety Disorders:
American Psychiatric Association. (2013). Anxiety disorders. In Diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders (5th ed.). https://doi.org/10.1176/appi.books.9780890425596.dsm05

Note: Be sure to use hanging indents and double-spacing in your reference list, in accordance with APA format guidelines.
