Typepad HTML Email I would italicize the period, because it comes between two italic elements.

Typepad HTML Email For the abstract, the word count refers to just the words in the paragraph of the abstract itself. Good question! And yes, “guideline” is used intentionally to convey that different practices may exist depending on the publisher, assignment, etc. J

Typepad HTML Email The suffix is included in the reference list entry but not the in-text citation: Reference list: Holton, J., IV In text: (Holton, 2015)

Typepad HTML Email You could also cite the OSHA standard via the C.F.R. route. The reader might not necessarily realize the OSHA standards are in the C.F.R. (I didn’t at first). Since you’re working in a field where citing standards is very common, using the C.F.R. version of the citation sounds like a great solution.

Typepad HTML Email Yes, in this case the abbreviation PWHA would mean both “person with HIV/AIDS” and “people with HIV/AIDS.”

Typepad HTML Email The two-part surnames get alphabetized by their first letter: So de Beauvoir goes under D, and de Haas goes under D as well.

Typepad HTML Email The format of the citation depends on where you are getting the quotation from. Where does it come from?

Typepad HTML Email Because the question is part of the quotation, you use a question mark in the quotation marks and a period at the end of the sentence: … as God asks his prophet, “Can these bones live again?” (v. 3).

Typepad HTML Email I recommend that after John Doe’s name in the epigraph you put a parenthetical citation for the DVD on which the quotation appears, which would be (Johnson, YEAR). Then in the reference list you put the reference for the DVD. You can even add that John Doe is a musician to the epigraph credit line after John Doe’s name: “Epigraph quotation here” --- John Doe, musician (Johnson, YEAR)

Typepad HTML Email If a page range exists for the article, it should be used in the APA Style reference. So, for example, if you use the HTML version of an article from one of APA’s journals (which all have pagination), then you would have to look at the database bibliographic record to see the page range for the reference. Likewise, even for an article with an article number, the guideline is to use the page range in the reference. Only if the article does not have pages should the page numbers should be omitted from the reference.

Typepad HTML Email There is no rule against a hyphen appearing at the end of a line. Many word-processing programs automatically prevent it, which is also fine.

Typepad HTML Email You put it under “P” for “Prince.”

Typepad HTML Email You would cite the radio drama in which the sound appears. In text this will be the producer and year of the radio program, plus the time stamp of the sound you want to refer to. You’ve got the time stamp already (0:32) so you just need to add the rest of the citation. In the reference list, your reference will be to the radio program (producer, year, title of program, and source information such as a publisher or URL).

Typepad HTML Email Because both sources have the same author, you only need to write the name of the author once. Write this as follows: (Ross, 2014a, 2014b)

Typepad HTML Email Yes, the string of names can get quite long! When you introduce an abbreviation, you can abbreviate whatever part of the name that you like. That way you only list the long string of the group author once per reference. How to introduce abbreviations for group authors is covered here: http://blog.apastyle.org/apastyle/2015/10/an-abbreviations-faq.html

Typepad HTML Email You should click through the link on Flipboard and cite the article directly. The fact that you first saw the article on Flipboard doesn’t matter for the reference.

Typepad HTML Email Yes, the capitalization rules reflect a word’s part of speech; so, if a word like “in” or “to” is functioning as an adverb, you would capitalize it in title case.

Typepad HTML Email When there is no author, the title of the work moves to the author position of the reference. So for your example, I recommend this reference: Ex-national security adviser defies Senate's Russia inquiry. (2017, May 22). Retrieved from http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-40004300 Also, the title of the article when I visited the link is different than what you included --- check the source to make sure you have the most up-to-date information.
