Here is the reference citation for the DSM-5:
American Psychiatric Association. (2013). Diagnostic and statistical manual of mental disorders (5th ed.). https://doi.org/10.1176/appi.books.9780890425596
Note: When the author and the publisher are the same, omit the publisher from the source element.
In-text citations for the DSM-5:
Note: Identify the title and the edition of a diagnostic manual in the text and include a citation the first time it is mentioned. If the first mention appears in a heading, cite it within the first paragraph of that section. Repeat a citation when it directly supports a statement but do not repeat the citation for other general mentions of a manual.
Note: After you define an abbreviation, as in the citations above, use only the abbreviation in your text.
See information about how to cite from the DSM-5 on p. 324 and how to use abbreviations on p. 173, section 6.25 of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 7th ed. See other examples at https://apastyle.apa.org/style-grammar-guidelines/references/examples/diagnostic-manual-references.
Each template gives you the order and formatting for each part of a reference citation (author, date,title, and source) for the specific kind of text you have found, whether it is in print or online.
