What Would You Like to Hear About?
We’ve been going on about who we are, what on earth this thing called a DOI is and how one finds one, and the typical components of an APA-Styled reference. We’ve also expounded, at great length, on the changes in APA Style brought about by the publication of the sixth edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association. As fun as it’s been, and as much as we have enjoyed and learned from your comments, we realize the inherent drawbacks of holding what could be construed as a relatively one-way conversation. We would much rather be spending our energy on explaining things that you would like explained.
So, we pose these questions to you: What sorts of things would you like to hear about from us? What tips or tricks have you found useful in applying APA Style? What particular APA Style guideline trips you up or just plain confuses you? What APA Style rule seems particularly cumbersome? What advice can you give people just learning APA Style?
Sometimes knowing the logic behind a style rule can make a world of difference in learning how to implement (and, we hope, not dread) it. And hearing what works from other veteran users can be invaluable. So let us know what needs explaining, and feel free to share your own insights. Plant your questions, tips, and ideas in the comments below. We look forward to hearing from you!
