APA Publication Manual in Japanese
By Mary Lynn Skutley
We received the Japanese translation of the sixth edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association 2 days before the earthquake and tsunamis struck northeastern Japan. Our hearts are with those who are struggling with that great devastation.
Igaku Shoin, publisher of the Japanese edition, has been dedicated to the advancement of medical and life sciences research since 1944. The Japanese Psychological Association was formed in 1927 (2 years before the APA Publication Manual made its first appearance as a seven-page journal article), and its members have a long history of promoting psychological research and practice. Please join us in celebrating the launch of this Japanese edition. We hope it succeeds in serving the spirit of inquiry and achievement.
