There are a number of guidelines in the APA Publication Manual that I had trouble finding at one time, so when I eventually found them I noted them down for myself so I could locate them easily whenever I needed to consult them again. here is a brief index of those particular guidelines, along with their locations in the soft-cover copy of the Seventh Edition of the Manual. where available, I’ve also linked to online guidance that reflects what is found in the hard copy. I plan to update this page to include additional guidelines that I expect to consult later.
