I don't have it at hand, mostly because I despise it quite passionately, but I'd not be surprised to find that the APA Style asks for that kind of exactitude. It's one of the joys of being a professional editor. New jobs with new publishers can mean learning a whole new way of doing things.

It would be lovely if publishers of fiction could get together and agree on a style guide... even if it were different ones for different countries it would make life easier for authors (and beta readers) working to make copy ready for submission. Doubt it'll ever happen, though. Given that academics can't seem to agree on a single style, or, for that matter agree to keep a style the same. (I call the current Canadian legal style guide the menopausal version. They've gone from recommending authors be cited as P. Smith, to P Smith, and from listing cases as "Able v. Baker" to "Able v Baker" -- I miss the periods.)
