Hi Ruth, Thank you for your comments on the article that is featured in our blog post by Onwuegbuzie, Slate, Combs, and Frels (2010).

Hi Chris, Thanks for your question about italicizing web articles. For web content that is not easily categorized, we do not italicize the title and follow the format in section 7.11 of the Publication Manual (pp. 214-215): Author, A. (date). Title of document [Format description]. Retrieved from http://URL For an in-depth discussion of how to cite materials you find on a website, see our blog post at http://bit.ly/g0Aoqt I hope this is helpful!
