How do I cite the DSM-5-TR in the MLA format?

Answer

The following is an example of how to cite the DSM-5-TR in the MLA format. For instructions on how to cite it in the APA, go here.

Works Cited

This is how you would cite the entire book of the DSM-5-TR as found online (if you used the print version, omit the DOI at the end):

American Psychiatric Association. Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. 5th ed., Text Revision, American Psychiatric Publishing, 2022, https://doi.org/10.1176/appi.books.9780890425787.

To cite a chapter of the DSM-5-TR, do the following (Note: the DOI at the end is the chapter DOI which can be found at the beginning of the chapter in the online version):

"Bipolar and Related Disorders." Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. 5th ed., Text Revision, American Psychiatric Association, 2022, https://doi.org/10.1176/appi.books.9780890425787.x03_Bipolar_and_Related_Disorders.

In-Text Citation

Since the American Psychiatric Association is the author (and the publisher) of the DSM-V-TR, that is what goes in the parenthesis. If using the print version, include a page number as well.

Example:

Those who suffer from separation anxiety "experience recurrent excessive distress when separation from home" (American Psychiatric Association).
