APA style provides general principles. 

First, compounds of a number, an abbreviation and more than one word in which the base word is capitalized (e.g. pro-Freudian, Post-1970, non-achievement-oriented students)

Second, all ‘self’ compounds (e.g. self-report techniques, self-paced, self-esteem)

Third, words that can lead to misunderstandings (e.g. re-pair, un-ionized)

Fourth, words where the prefix ends and the base word starts with the same vowel (e.g. meta-analysis, anti-intellectual)
