In citing articles in APA format, your site suggests using sentence case for the citation. Does that mean regardless of how the article itself is titled? i.e. Article title as published in publication: IT leadership is Nothing Special, should this be cited as IT leadership is nothing special?

Yes that is correct. Regardless of how the article is capitalized, you will always change it to sentence case when citing it on your APA reference page. Of course the exceptions would be with proper names and beginning subtitles that are set off with a colon. Babe Ruth: The Greatest Baseball Player Ever would become: Babe Ruth: The greatest baseball player ever. Also always remember that each element of your reference is ended with a period except for websites (no punctuation) and publication location for books (colon). Jones, S. (2010, May 5). Babe Ruth: The greatest baseball player ever. Retrieved from or Jones, S. (2010, May 5). Babe Ruth: The greatest baseball player ever. Washington, DC: American Sports Publication House.
