Another choice is "End Note," which I use and it is pretty accessible with
JAWS. It does the same thing, plus you can save all the articles you have
researched for future references, and categorize them according to topic. I
thinkit costs about $120.

A very helpful bit of software if you ever find yourself doing a whole lot
of research (like in graduate school) is called Reference Manager
<http://www.refman.com/> . It will go online to obtain the bibliographic
data for the sources you use, and then automatically format it according to
whatever style you need. Very handy. I don't know about its accessibility,

You do double space the entire page, not just between entries. I usually
write the whole reference page and then select it and select the double
space option in the format menu.
The title of the article has no quotation marks, and you only capitalize the
first word of the title and any subsequent subtitles. There should be a
period after the last word of the title or subtitle if the article has one.
The title of the journal should be in itallics and all words capitalized as
you normally would, excluding "the" and "and" etc.
After the journal name, there should be a comma. then the volume number and
directly next to it inside parentheses is the issue number, then a comma and
the page numbers. For example: Journal of Zoology, 4(2), 86-103.

I suggest to be safe...go to google and find the Purdue OWL APA information.
That will be the most updated in accurate info. Another great website
offered by my college actually for making these citations is knight cite.
Just google Calvin College knight cite and it will take you to a site where
you can create citations easily. But the OWL will help the most.

Well, I'm compiling my least favorite things, a reference list.
I only double space between entries, not the whole thing right? I'm doing it
APA. I have articles from a database. How Do I format the Journal title and
title of article? Do I put italics or anything on it? Before there were
quotes around the title of article, but when I looked online now, there are
How do I site the volume number and issue? The sample says number and a
parenthese number. I'm confused. I know I site the page number range after
