It follows APA formatting guidelines at all times, with no exceptions

The 2nd half of TLT (Q3, Q4) doesnt necessarily need to be in APA format for everything, but should in principle follow APA. For example, sections like the Book Lists in Recently Received arent addressed in APA, so theres a bit of a unique style to those. In addition, a list of APA exceptions can be found at the TLT website.
