Editorial Potpourri

For your editorial pleasure, here is a potpourri of goodies:

This one is a handy tool for both editors and writers: "The Ultimate Resource Guides for MLA, APA, Chicago, and CSE." It's a compendium of links to web sites explaining the various styles and showing examples of materials that follow them.

Information on the Boycott the APA Manual Facebook page indicates that the American Psychological Association is now willing to provided corrected replacement copies of the sixth edition of the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, the first printing of which is rife with errors and odd style changes.

Spice up your office or home d├ęcor with the Periodic Table of Typefaces, Popular, Influential, & Notorious.

Finally, no editorial office is complete without tea, so I direct you to the delightful "AnTEAoxidant Rap."

I know this will bug you, but I also prefer two spaces after a period after the end of a sentence. HTML ignores it, but it makes print publications so much easier for me to read.

LibHom, you can do the spacing however you want in your own documents. That's your privilege, and I won't try to dissuade you. But if you should ever have me edit something that you've written and intend to submit to a peer-reviewed journal or book publisher for publication, I'd have to make it one space after end-punctuation throughout the document.
