Q. Should URLs (links) in citations and references be active hyperlinks (blue and underlined)? (APA 6th Edition)

Answer

APA does not have a rule about active hyperlinks (blue and underlined).

The APA Style blog recommends having active links (hyperlinks) if your document is electronic (Microsoft Word document, PowerPoint, etc.).

If your document will be printed, the APA Style blog recommends removing the hyperlinks.
