Q. APA format, if more than 6 authors do you use ...


In APA style, if there are 6 or 7 authors, you list all of them like normal in the reference list; for the parenthetical citation just use the first author followed by et al. 

If there are more than 7 authors, the reference will be a bit different.  You'd list the first six authors, then an ellipsis, and then the final author's name.  For the in-text citation, you would again use just the first author and et al.  For further explanation and detailed examples, you can consult this page.
