I'm writing a paper in APA style. Once of the periodical numbers puts an R before the page numbers (for example, R1430-R1440). Do I include the R when adding this reference to my references list?

You want Jagatuba for this.

Yes. How ever the periodical pages are numbered, you keep that the same in your citations and reference entries. A common example of a periodical with strange page numbers is the newspaper (A1...B1...etc). So a reference entry would go: Killman, A. (2011, December, 3). Council member arrested in shooting. The Fresno Bee, pp. A1-A2, A15. and the citation would go: Killman (2011) states, "Authorities arrived on the scene and arrested Jenkins" (pp. A1-A2, A15). In this particular example the article in question appears on page 1, 2, and 15 of section A of the newspaper. You can probably see that if I removed the A and someone picked up the B section and started looking for the article they would be out of luck. So yes. Use the page numbers as they appear (R119, B3, 12/345, etc.)
