How do you cite and reference the DSM-IV-TR? The software won't let me put in text revision when adding it as a new reference or citation....

There is a specific way to cite the DSM Manual in APA style. It can be quite confusing to create the reference and in text citation manually. The DSM Manual is a PERRLA for APA reference type option. (Click Edit References, Click New, Click Search Reference Types, enter DSM, and the reference type will appear).

The PERRLA created reference will look like the example below after all information has been entered within the PERRLA Reference Wizard.
American Psychiatric Association. (2000). Diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders (4th ed., text rev.). Washington, DC: Author.
According to the APA organization, the 1st in text citation must include the name of the association, name of the manual, and the year. The 2nd in text citation must include the edition type, abbreviation of that edition, name of the association, and the year.

PERRLA Created In Text Citations

1st Citation: (American Psychiatric Association, Diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders, 2000)
2nd Citation: (4th ed., text rev.; DSM-IV-TR; American Psychiatric Association, 2000)

Is there an online version of DSM-IV-TR? If so where can it be found?
