We offer a version of PERRLA for the Mac. And this isn’t a neglected step-child of our Windows version. The same simplicity and reliability that earned us 500,000+ users since 1998 are what make PERRLA a great solution for you.

Note: PERRLA for Mac works with Microsoft WORD 2011. It is NOT compatible with older versions of Microsoft WORD.

PERRLA automatically integrates with WORD 2011. A couple of clicks and you’re correctly formatting your paper!

The Reference Wizard asks you for each piece of required information and properly formats the in-text citation. PLUS it automatically adds the reference to your reference page. All references are saved to a database so you can use them again.

JourneyEd has the best student price we’ve found. They’re simply the most reliable, lowest-cost supplier we know of.

Head & Shoulders Above the Rest

A long record of success
PERRLA has been working to help students write perfectly formatted papers since 1998. So, we’ve been working with students for the same amount of time that it takes to go from First Grade to College Graduation. (With all that work, we need some quiet time on our “nap mat”!)

Unparalleled Customer Support
We have one of the best Customer Support teams in this and all possible worlds. Our dedicated and US-based PERRLA specialists are on the clock from 8am - 10pm Central every single day.

Simple to understand and easy to use
We’ve designed PERRLA for APA to work seamlessly and effortlessly within Microsoft Word.  Creating references and citations, adding tables and chards, inserting abstracts, and more, is all available with just a few clicks. (And don’t forget, if you have any questions, we’re here for you!)

PERRLA vs. Word

Just no. Friends don’t let friends format APA papers with Microsoft Word. References created with Word require manual corrections to be truly APA compliant.
