If the author thinks it necessary to define the acronyms in a table, then it makes sense to include them all, or to provide a rationale for which ones have been included.

If you only use one book as a source for your paper, you will have only one reference list entry. For the in text citations, you can also include the page number along with the author and date to provide more specificity for the citation for the reader.

Typepad HTML Email You can leave it the same as it was published—no need to add italics.

Typepad HTML Email Yes, put citations midsentence if the information pertaining to those citations is also midsentence. Only put all citations at the end if all citations apply to the whole sentence.

Typepad HTML Email No, you leave it off. The kind of punctuation you would leave would be a question mark or exclamation point, something that changes the tone of the sentence.

Typepad HTML Email Usually in APA Style you don’t see a page number without an author and date, but this may have more to do with the usual writing practice of APA authors vs. students than this practice being prohibited. Here’s what I would do: For direct quotations, always include the author, date, and page number. For paraphrases, if this is the first time you have cited to a work in a paragraph, include the author and date, and the page number is optional. Within a paragraph, if you have multiple narrative citations, you can omit the author and the date upon subsequent narrative citations and include just the page number so long as the reference is clear. So in the example you provided, it’s all fine except for the end part that’s two pages later---that citation would have to be (Smith, 2010, p. 37).

Typepad HTML Email You should get the permission of the person in the photograph to use their photograph as stimuli (get the permission in writing). However, you do not need to put a copyright permission statement in your paper because you will not be publishing the photographs.

Typepad HTML Email Use the page range: Frontiers in Psychology, 4, 1-25.

The first example is a chapter "in" an edited book, and the second example is of a whole edited book, so there is nothing for the whole book to be in.

Typepad HTML Email Treat the pseudonym identifier like any other name. The citation format should be the same.

Typepad HTML Email Thanks for the kind words! Either title would be fine, but I personally like “Visualization of” better. Good luck!

by Chelsea Lee Dear Style Expert, What words count toward the word count in an APA Style paper? Am I supposed to count the title page, abstract, citations, and reference list? Are there minimums or maximums for the word count... Continue reading

Typepad HTML Email Yes, indeed! I hadn’t thought about the Qur’an example’s relevance. Perhaps it should go back to no comma for now if that is the widespread practice. Yes for sure we will clarify in the next edition.

It is unclear whether there should be a comma as per the manual because the combined form example isn't shown. But when references convert from narrative to parenthetical format they acquire a comma separator, so it stands to reason one should be used here too.

Typepad HTML Email Double-spacing refers to the line and paragraph spacing. Only put one space between each word.

Typepad HTML Email Wow, a heated debate! I think you should put a comma there, to delineate the elements.
