Formatting guidelines

The APA newsletters adhere to The Chicago Manual of Style.

Use as little formatting as possible. Details like page numbers, headers, footers, and columns will be added later. Use tabs instead of multiple spaces for indenting. Use italics instead of underlining. Use an em dash (—) instead of a double hyphen (--). Use endnotes instead of footnotes. Examples of proper endnote style:

John Rawls, A Theory of Justice (Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1971), 90.

See Sally Haslanger, “Gender and Race: (What) Are They? (What) Do We Want Them To Be?” Noûs 34 (2000): 31–55.
