An APA style essay should have the following features in its title or cover page, running head, and in its page numbers:
Every page – including the essay’s title or cover page, the abstract page(s) if present, and the reference pages – should display the page number in the top right-hand corner. The title – in its short version - should also be displayed on each subsequent page, with the words “running head” left out.
If a tutor asks for a title page to be omitted, then you should add your own name, the name of the class, the name of your instructor, and the assignment’s date in the upper left side of the first essay page. The title should be centered on the next line. Your essay should then begin on the next line. All of this information should be in double-spacing.
There is a ‘Header’ feature in Word that handles all the formatting items described above. If you try to type these manually, you may find it difficult to keep everything correct. By following the steps below, your header will look different from the second page on than it does on the title page.
How to handle main section and sub-section headings: If headings are requested by your tutor, these should be used to indicate new ideas or sections in a paper. A lot of papers are comprised of such sections as Introduction, Methodology, Findings, and Discussion. Where used, headings should be highlighted in bold and placed in the center. All words should be capitalized with the exception of “the,” “a,” “an” (articles) and “but,” “and,” “or,” etc. (conjunctions) and “to,” “on,” “in,” etc. (prepositions) unless a title or subtitle begins with these words.
Referencing. You should add a reference page at the end if any sources have been cited in your essay.
