Here at PERRLA, we're constantly working to make writing papers easier. Our latest updates make it easier than ever before to get perfect formatting for your entire APA & MLA papers! Check out just some of our new features below.
We know there's a lot more to writing than just formatting references and citations. That's why we're starting a new process of building out the research functionality in PERRLA Online - starting with the Organize tab inside your APA 7 papers.
One of our most exciting features has been the ability to search for Books, Journals, and Websites in APA 7th Edition papers. If you have an ISBN, DOI, URL, or the Author and Title, you can search for the reference instead of having to type all of its information into the Reference Wizard. Now, you can create perfect references in seconds!
With our updated Online Editor, the interface is now the same for PERRLA Online and PERRLA for Word. Both the new PERRLA Add-in for Word and our own Editor use the same ribbon bar menu and side-panel to help you write perfect papers, no matter where you're writing!
While updating to APA 7, we were able to make some long-wished-for changes to the Reference Wizard. We simplified the type selection so it's clear exactly the type of reference you need to create. We also streamlined the fields you needed to fill in for a perfect reference. Lastly, we made it smarter to help keep you from losing points on simple errors.
The Seventh Edition of the APA Manual was released in October of 2019. We were the first ones to release a full APA 7 Editor at the start of 2020! In addition to making updates to all the formatting rules, we also added the ability to create Student & Professional Research Papers following the APA 7 guidance.
