Typepad HTML Email Greek letters used as variables aren’t italicized because it’s not APA Style to italicize them. I believe they are considered different enough from the Roman alphabet that the writers of the manual didn’t think it necessary to distinguish them further through italicization.

Typepad HTML Email Yes, exactly!

Typepad HTML Email Regular number formatting applies when an amendment is mentioned as part of a sentence: spell out for the first through ninth amendments and use numerals thereafter (e.g., “the fourth amendment,” “the 12th amendment”).

Typepad HTML Email Yes, thank you for pointing this out. This was a limitation of the scope of the examples shown in the 2010 post and why the 2016 post was added.

Typepad HTML Email The time stamp should reflect the format shown on the video. Videos shorter than 1 hour usually only show minutes and seconds (e.g., 01:20), whereas videos longer than an hour show hours, minutes, and seconds (e.g., 00:01:20). As long as users reproduce what they see as the timestamp, the reader should not have trouble finding the same point. Thanks for your suggestion of an alternative format though J

by Chelsea Lee If a reference list entry begins with a number (as might be the case for a reference with no author), you should alphabetize the entry in the reference list as though the number were spelled out. So... Continue reading

Typepad HTML Email An example of a work that is part of a greater whole would be an article on one of those news aggregator sites like MSN.com. The “greater whole” is the news aggregator website and it has articles on it. Otherwise there should be no difference between the 2010 and 2016 guidelines – what are you referring to?

Typepad HTML Email A reference to an online journal is the same as a reference to a print journal article, except that it includes electronic retrieval information (usually a DOI).

Typepad HTML Email You’ve got it right, except that APA uses a hyphen in the “n.d.-a” and “n.d.-b” elements. Otherwise, you’re good to go.

Typepad HTML Email The format is the same as for a journal article. The author as stated on the work is National Council of State Boards of Nursing, so you will alphabetize it under N.

Typepad HTML Email In this case, you would list all authors for both references to distinguish them.

Typepad HTML Email Yes, this works great.

Typepad HTML Email The format would be author (the person who wrote the review, using whatever screen name they used on the site), the full date of review, the title of the review plus “[Review of the app XYZ by Smith Company]”, and then the URL of the review.

Leave the punctuation as you saw it.

The URL is that of the book publisher. EBSCO and ebrary are not publishers; they are databases. You should do a search for the book publisher and use that home page in the reference.

Typepad HTML Email NICE is capped because it is an acronym, and the other words are capitalized because they are followed by a number denoting a place in a series.

by Chelsea Lee Mistakes sometimes make their way into published articles. When these mistakes are discovered, they must be disclosed to the community of scholars so that other researchers do not draw conclusions from false premises. If the error is... Continue reading

Typepad HTML Email Thanks for sharing your thoughts on presenting the title on the title page. If the title spans two lines, you can break it wherever you want (or just let it wrap naturally). Perhaps a break at a different place would alleviate the confusion you are experiencing.

Typepad HTML Email Put the article title in quotation marks and title case when you use it in an in-text citation. In the reference list, the only special thing is to alphabetize the title as though the number were spelled out---so 2012 would be “two-thousand twelve.”

Typepad HTML Email Think of hyphens as serving two purposes. One is to attach a prefix to a word (like “pre-existing”), and the other is to connect two words into a compound (like “self-report”). In the case of a prefix, you would only capitalize the first letter of the word when writing in title case (“Pre-existing”); in the case of a hyphen in a compound word, you capitalize both first letters (“Self-Report”).

Typepad HTML Email Yes, that’s it!

Typepad HTML Email Yes, the format from the software is wrong. A reference for the whole edited book should look like this: Sauvant, D., Perez, J.-M., & Tran, G. (Eds.). (2004). Tables of composition and nutritional value of feed materials: Pig, poultry, cattle, sheep, goats, rabbits, horses, fish (A. Ponter, Trans., 2nd ed.). Wageningen, the Netherlands: Wageningen Academic Publishers.

Typepad HTML Email Yes, the guidance is accurate.

Typepad HTML Email Yes, as described in this post, in the absence of a page number, you are supposed to provide other means to help the reader locate the quoted passage. The response to MTW in February 2017 refers to a case where there is only three lines of text on the page and nothing else---not a typical case.
