Notes on APA Style

A note on punctuation and spacing: prior to the advent of computers, the standard was to place two spaces after periods (and other ending punctuation) and one space after commas, colons, and semicolons.  It is now acceptable to use either one or two spaces after periods. 

A note on italicization and underlining: as of the 5th edition italics is preferred over the use of underlining.
