This journal guidelines requires that

References should follow the APA style, but without any use of italic type

In the apa6 package some parts of the references are italicized. I'm wondering, is there a simple way to change that?

Welcome to TeX.sx! Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. It will be much easier for us to reproduce your situation and find out what the issue is when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – egreg Jan 7 '13 at 10:53
The apa6 package supports biblatex, apacite, and natbib. The answer will likely depend on which bibliography system you are using. – StrongBad Jan 7 '13 at 10:57

You could try to redefine locally \itdefault:

abc {\itshape abc} \textit{abc}

\begingroup %no itshape here:
abc {\itshape abc} \textit{abc}
