Typepad HTML Email You can actually count from the nearest heading. So you can say “Results section, para 2” where the word “Results” is the name of the heading.

Typepad HTML Email The format is the same as for a print encyclopedia except the reference ends with the URL. Berger, F. K. (2016). Hallucinations. In MedLine Plus. Retrieved from https://medlineplus.gov/ency/article/003258.htm In text: (Berger, 2016)

Typepad HTML Email You don’t need the comma when you’re using a dash. Your sentence is correct if you take the comma out and just use the dashes!

Typepad HTML Email Thank you, you are correct! It must have changed since I wrote the post originally a few months ago. I will update the post.

Typepad HTML Email I think in this case you’d just use author and date and no page or paragraph number, because there is no page or paragraph number to give.

Typepad HTML Email Yes, it is perfectly fine if you give your students a rule to follow that works better for you. Making adaptations to APA Style like this is totally permissible. Thanks for sharing what works better for you.

by Chelsea Lee The UpToDate database contains peer-reviewed medical articles that are periodically updated by experts in the field; as such, it is a popular source for writers to cite in APA Style. Cite an article from UpToDate like you... Continue reading

Typepad HTML Email Interesting question. I think that (Mis)representation makes the most aesthetic sense.

Typepad HTML Email Awesome!

Typepad HTML Email Good question! The rules are meant to create a balance between providing credit to all researchers on a work (and not just the first author) in the text and not creating citations that are cumbersomely long.

Typepad HTML Email You should write the organizations’ names the way they are shown on the work. They are only shown as abbreviations on the work you are citing, so cite them that way. J

Typepad HTML Email The Hebrew quotation will need to be transliterated, as described here: http://blog.apastyle.org/apastyle/2010/08/apples-to-%D7%AA%D7%A4%D7%97%D7%99%D7%9D.html

Typepad HTML Email Good question…. Alas I’m not sure of the reasoning behind this choice other that in the text, the term DOI is capitalized as an acronym. However, in the reference list, we recommend that you follow the current recommendations for DOI display from CrossRef, which is to use the prefix http://dx.doi.org/ followed by the DOI number. For example: http://dx.doi.org/10.3389/fpsyg.2015.00049

Typepad HTML Email You can start counting paragraphs from the nearest heading or subheading. So say the subheading is called “Administration” and the quote is from the second paragraph in that section, then you would write (Smith, 2016, Administration section, para. 2).

Typepad HTML Email Are you writing in Spanish or in English? If you are writing in Spanish the whole reference is in Spanish: Weiss, C. H. (1990). Investigación evaluativa: métodos para determinar la eficiencia de los programas de acción (2nd ed., F. G. Aramburu, Trans.). Mexico City, Mexico: Trillas. (Original work published 1997) If you are writing in English but read the book in Spanish then the reference is mostly in Spanish but partly in English Weiss, C. H. (1990). Investigación evaluativa: métodos para determinar la eficiencia de los programas de acción [Evaluation research: Methods of assessing program effectiveness] (2nd ed., F. G. Aramburu, Trans.). Mexico City, Mexico: Trillas. (Original work published 1972) Either way, the in-text citation should be: (Weiss, 1972/1990). The 1972 comes from the year the English version of the work was first published. The years of reprints don't matter for references---those just mean the publisher made more copies of the same original book.

Typepad HTML Email Yes, repeat the full citation for both the table and figure. For the copyright, it should be listed on the work itself. In a journal article, it’s usually on the first page of the article in one of the corners of the page, and for books and reports it is usually on the copyright page at the beginning of the book/report. For websites, copyright is usually in the page footer of the website. Thanks for the questions!

Typepad HTML Email The word “format” means a description of what the work is. So for example, you might describe a work as a Press release because a press release is an informational work from a news agency, not, say, a peer-reviewed empirical study. It is optional to include---depending on what you are citing you can decide whether to include it or not. It doesn’t matter whether the author is also missing for making that decision.

Typepad HTML Email We advise when you use a name three times or fewer that you spell it out every time. An exception would be if the acronym is so well-known that readers wouldn’t have a hard time remembering it even if they only see it one to three times. For your case, though, I think it would be better to spell the full name out each time.

Typepad HTML Email The month and day are not significant for the reference, but you could work in the name of the reviser and the revision date. Smith, D. G. (2015). Shaman (M. Filice, Ed.). In D. Aronovitch (Ed.), The Canadian encyclopedia. Retrieved from http://www.thecanadianencyclopedia.ca/en/article/shaman/ (Original work published 2006) In text: (Smith, 2006/2015). (I had to look up the current editor of the encyclopedia on the encyclopedia’s about us page.) Hope that helps!

Typepad HTML Email The goal is to find a way to direct the reader to the quotation. How would you tell the reader how to find this quotation? That’s what you should put in the quotation. Counting the pages manually might be a good option.
