The 6th edition, July 2009, is the latest edition. Beware, it has many pages of errata, and one can only hope that the corrected edition has gone to press and will replace this first printing soon!

The 6th Edition is the newest; it was just released July 1. I know: I work at APA. Here's the link if you're interested: http://www.apastyle.org.

david shapiro, August 29, 2008 (view all comments by david shapiro)
This 2001 fifth edition IS the current edition.
APA sells it to members and affiliates for $28, not $24, and certainly not $20. (They offer a free pdf of errata.)
It may be called the APA Manual, and published by them, but it is relied upon by more organizations than the APA.
Visit www.apa.org for more information.
