In titles of articles, books, parts of books, and other material, retain the spelling, abbreviations, and style for numbers used in the original. Note: Numbers that begin a title are spelled out (although exceptions are made for years; see , Manuscript Preparation, Titles and Subtitles, Numbers).In English-language titles, capitalize only (1) the first letter of the first word, (2) proper names, and (3) abbreviations that are ordinarily capitalized (eg, DNA, EEG, VDRL). Do not enclose article and book chapter titles in quotation marks. However, if a book, book chapter, or article title contains quotation marks in the original, retain them
