The Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, Sixth Edition (2010) recommends that citations to online materials provide title, date, internet address, and author names of the reference. Reviews retrieved from Test Reviews Online will have a specific eight-digit number attached to them (e.g., 18192839) listed above the test name. The first two digits of this eight-digit number convey the specific edition of the Mental Measurements Yearbook (MMY). "18xxxxxx" indicates the 18th MMY, "17xxxxxx" the 17th, etc.

Here is the suggested citation format for reviews obtained through Test Reviews Online for different editions of the Mental Measurements Yearbook (MMY):
