Hi Timothy, Thanks for getting back to me. It was on the post that you linked to, but I keep getting a glitch when I try to show more comments on that page so half the time I can't find mine - I thought it was just my computer, but maybe it's the site. Anyways, thank you for clarifying - I think I missed the part right under the green box before. As I understand what that says, we only need to include the type of e-book if what - we bought it from amazon? Since "If the book was read or acquired through an online library" we omit the bracketed information. I don't understand the difference - why does the source change whether you have to indicate the e-book type?

Hi! I'm not sure this is the best post to ask this question on, but you seem to be the only one still replying to comments, so I'm going to try here. I already looked at the e-book post and it just made me more confused and posting the question there got me no response. Here goes: The examples in the manual of how to cite an electronic version of a resource are very confusing as they don't seem to match. Example 19, Electronic version of a book, shows the book type in brackets. Example 20, Electronic-only book, has no brackets. Neither Example 21, Electronic version of a republished book, nor Example 24, Electronic version of book chapter in a volume in a series, yet in an example on the APA style blog (http://blog.apastyle.org/apastyle/2009/09/how-do-i-cite-a-kindle.html#comment-6a01157041f4e3970b01b8d23a9b57970c), which seems to be a reference very similar to Examples 21 and 24, has the version type in brackets. What makes this one different? Given the disparity and the fact that the are more examples without brackets than with, I've been leaving them off in references. Is this incorrect - for APA should we go back and include [version type] in every reference to an electronic book regardless of the examples in the manual?

Thank you!

I note that while your initial example - and the manual - indicate no spaces on either side of the em dash, both the comment examples you did include a space on one or both sides of the em dash. Is that correct. Also, how do you handle an em dash after a parenthesis or quotation mark, as in this sentence: Khmer rote memory and “choral recitation” —one pedagogy attending to the individual IS that correct? Should there be a space after the ending quotation mark or not? Here's an example after a closing parenthesis: ‘What [people] sing is all a piece with their minds and hearts’” (p. 340) – another recommended avenue of connection for faith communities.

I need to know the correct format for quoting an interviewee from this article: http://indianexpress.com/article/india/india-others/learnings-not-about-enrolment-latrines-in-school-were-failing-children-on-massive-scale/ I understand from your above responses that the full reference should be formatted as a newspaper article, so would look like this: Damodaran, Harish. (2015, February 1). “Learning’s not about enrollment, latrines in school. We’re failing children on a massive scale.” The Indian Express. Retrieved from http://indianexpress.com/article/india/india-others/learnings-not-about-enrolment-latrines-in-school-were-failing-children-on-massive-scale/ HOWEVER, how would I then format a quote in my text from one of the interviewees? Would this be correct: As Banerjee maintained, “The right to education is a right which should be measured by whether the children are learning” (Damodaran, 2015).

I'm hoping this thread is still being monitored. I'm trying to figure out whether this http://www.ucop.edu/acadinit/mastplan/MPComm1987.pdf should be referenced as a group or a list of authors. I've read all your replies and am leaning towards: Commission for the Review of the Master Plan for Higher Education. (1987). The Master Plan Renewed: unity, equity, quality, and efficiency in California postsecondary education. However, should I list all the members of the commission as listed on the cover letter?

Here's an interesting challenge: I have a level 2 heading that consists entirely of the name of a policy document. A level 2 heading is usually Bold, Sentence Case - no italics. However, the title of the policy document (as I understand it) is italicized in the text. So should I italicize it in the heading as well even though it'll make the level 2 heading look like this: A Master Plan for Higher Education in California, 1960-1975
