I am writing a critical analysis of an article involving a "rule". Every time the authors mention the word "rule", it is in quotations. Would it be correct to also include "rule" in quotations every time I mention it in my paper, or to include it without?

I would italicize the term in APA style, and in other styles as well.

According to the APA style blog you only have to italicize once.
