Ms. Lee, I am confused about the use of the "In" in a citation that includes editors. Here are 2 examples. Kiernan, B. (1976). The novels of Patrick White. In G. Dutton (Ed.), The literature of Australia (Rev. ed., pp. 461-484). Ringwood, Australia: Penguin. Wilkinson, R., & Marmot, M. (Eds.). (2003). Social determinants of health: The solid facts (2nd ed.). Retrieved from document/e81384.pdf In the second case why is IN not used? And in what cases is IN NOT used when eds. ed. editors are cited? Thanks! Andrew

I have a question about this paragraph, near the end: The Publication Manual notes that supplemental materials should be included “only if they help readers to understand, evaluate, or replicate the study or theoretical argument being made” (p. 40). But couldn't you say that about any material? I don't know what the reader is supposed to learn from this?

Dear Tim, The one thing I cannot understand here is why the shortened title in quotation marks? What is the rule that drives this? I am writing a guide for students, and I am wondering where else that rule would affect a citation. Andrew

Timothy McAdoo, thanks for the explanation of square brackets, now I get it. But there is still something that confuses me. What do you mean by “nonroutine” information? For example page 207, "37. Conference paper abstract retrieved online" - this doesn't use square brackets. Then on page 209, 49. Video - this uses square brackets "[DVD]". To me, Item A is a much more obscure thing than example B, a DVD. I would have put brackets around "Conference paper abstract retrieved online" and not "DVD". What is the underlying rule here that makes B require brackets and not A? Thanks! Andrew

Hi Jeff, Thanks for the great work. I am confused about the example near the front citing a painting in Museum of Modern Art. As its nearly impossible for most people to go to the gallery in question, I thought this would be considered "not-recoverable"? So when would you cite a painting in a gallery, and when wouldn't you? One more question. What if an item, lets say its a photo, is "not-recoverable" but the author wants to cite in in order to not violate copyright laws? Lets say the author uses a copy in their work that they borrowed from someone? In other words, what if the author just wants to give credit for legal reasons, and doesn't really care if its recoverable but just want to cite something for legal reasons. Isn't that a valid reason too? I don't really see this issue covered in the APA Manual. Regards, Andrew
