Flash: APA on citing a Kindle edition!

Amazon Kindle Community member “Batman Jr.” posted that the APA (American Psychological Association) has provided sample citations for citing a Kindle edition!

This is big news: people have been asking about this for a long time.  There are a few standard sources for what is an acceptable citation, and the APA is one of them.  On September 15, 2009, they addressed the issue in their blog here: http://blog.apastyle.org/apastyle/2009/09/how-do-i-cite-a-kindle.html.

I still don’t see anything from the MLA (Modern Language Association), but they will hopefully follow suit.

Thanks, Batman Jr.!
