Concise Rules of APA Style
American Psychological Association, Jan 1, 2005 - Reference - 212 pages
Where do you put the notes to a table? What is the difference between "g" and "g"? How do you cite a work discussed in a secondary source? Along with answering these and other questions that always seem to arise about six minutes before deadline, this reference also gives information on organizing ideas into an acceptable form and reducing bias in language. Compiled from the fifth edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, this pocket guide includes information on punctuation (for those who confuse slashes with hyphens), capitalization (for those who confuse newtons and watts with Newton and Watt), spelling (for all of us), italicizing, and abbreviating, as well as advice on presenting statistics, tables, figures, quotations, citations, footnotes and appendices (it prefers "appendixes"). It also provides very helpful reference examples, including those from electronic and audiovisual media, a cross-reference to the publication manual and a checklist for manuscript.
