The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association is
widely used in the social sciences.  The most recent update, in 2009,
altered the formatting guidelines and therefore rendered existing
formatting solutions inadequate.  The apa6 class is an update of
older code from the apa class (available from CTAN), which is no
longer being maintained.  New features have also been added, such as
suppressing references to one's own work to facilitate masked reviews
of manuscripts by independent reviewers.  See the documentation for

apa6 – For­mat doc­u­ments in APA style (6th edi­tion)

The class for­mats doc­u­ments in APA style (6th Edi­tion). It pro­vides a full set of fa­cil­i­ties in three dif­fer­ent out­put modes (jour­nal-like ap­pear­ance, dou­ble-spaced manuscript, -like doc­u­ment), in con­trast to the ear­lier apa6e, which only for­mats dou­ble-spaced manuscripts in APA style. The class can mask au­thor iden­tity for copies for use in masked peer re­view.

The class is a de­vel­op­ment of the apa class (which is no longer main­tained).
