Typepad HTML Email I understand. If the article is also available in print, you can give the print version of the reference as well, which will end with the article page numbers. That sounds like it will be the better solution for your case.

Typepad HTML Email The notation [Abstract] is used only when you read/accessed only the abstract of a paper. Since you read the whole article, your reference will go to the whole article. For the direct quotation, because there is no page number, you will have to direct the reader to the quotation in another way. There are several ways of accomplishing this, but the most simple may be to say (Smith, 2018, abstract).

Typepad HTML Email No, you can leave the heading where it is on the last line of the page. It’s fine there.

Typepad HTML Email If your audience will not be able to read the original source, I suggest that you paraphrase the source rather than directly quoting. Then you will not have to transliterate, as you requested.

Typepad HTML Email The format we use is “Retrieved from http://xxxx” where the URL is the login page of the database. I appreciate you pointing out the various nuances of different wording; however, in practice the interpretation of the phrasing I recommended is that you retrieved it from the database, and because the database requires a login, you give the login URL.

Typepad HTML Email You can always send questions to us at StyleExpert@apa.org. The formatting for appendices is flexible depending on what is in the appendix. If the appendix contains text, then we recommend that it use the same formatting as the rest of the paper (line spacing, margins, etc.). However, if you’ve got something special, like an inventory, you might need different presentation. Send us an email with more details and we can help you out.

Typepad HTML Email I think “Reprinted” is the better choice in this case. You were trying to give a clean copy, so any minor differences in the proportions are unintentional and very difficult to see.

Typepad HTML Email Legal references follow legal citation style. You will have to look up the state’s reference format. University legal libraries are a good resource for this. If you need more help, please contact us at StyleExpert at apa.org.

Typepad HTML Email Yes, follow the same formatting guidelines for quotations in tables as in the text.

by Chelsea Lee If you write about students in elementary, middle, or high school, then you’ve had to consider how to write grade numbers: eighth grade? 8th grade? Grade 8? Which is right? Should there be a hyphen? In APA... Continue reading

Typepad HTML Email Just apply the heading formatting as shown in Section 3.03 of the Publication Manual. (If you’re finding it too confusing though, that might mean your readers would be confused too---perhaps consider another heading.)

Typepad HTML Email Format the heading according to the heading level you need, and then add the in-text citation for the APA Ethics Code. In your reference list, put the full reference list entry for the Ethics Code.

Typepad HTML Email It’s not addressed, so we suggest you just use the same spacing as you have used after punctuation marks in the rest of the paper (so if you used double, do double).

Typepad HTML Email Typically an em dash is used when the name of the test instrument is spelled out, and an en dash or hyphen is used when the name of the instrument is abbreviated.

Typepad HTML Email Follow the strategy described in the section of this post called “Making Note of a Name Change.” Refer to the organization by its new name, and explain that it used to be called something different. It’s the same strategy as if a person changed their name.

by Chelsea Lee A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, right? Readers often ask us questions about how to handle repeated surnames in references. For example, how do you cite a work where some or all of... Continue reading

Typepad HTML Email Yes, I would do the citations as they are in your example.

Typepad HTML Email Yes, on the reference page, leave the number how it is shown on the original source.

Typepad HTML Email Good question! The difference between my post and Anne’s post is that I’m talking about numbers in reference list entries—in which your goal is to reproduce what is on the source, even if it is not in APA Style---whereas Anne is talking about how to write numbers in your own sentences, titles, or text headings. For the purpose of retrievability, do not change the format of numbers in reference list entries. So if a reference has a title that starts with a numeral, this post shows you how to alphabetize it. Hope that helps!

Typepad HTML Email It is more important to respect how authors want to spell their own names, so I would recommend bell hooks as the spelling throughout. Note in your example reference that “A” in “A pedagogy” should be capitalized though. Otherwise, the second example if what I would recommend.

Typepad HTML Email Looking good! Just remember to italicize the title of the standard.

Typepad HTML Email I’d be happy to help, but it’s hard to say without being able to see the particular page you are trying to cite. Can you send a link/screenshot to us by email at StyleExpert at apa.org please?

Typepad HTML Email Sorry, I am not exactly sure I understand the question --- can you send an example to the style team by email at StyleExpert at apa.org?
