APA Format Title Page

by Stephen on October 2, 2012 · 6 comments

This page contains information on how to properly format your cover page (title page) in APA using the latest APA Manual.

Your APA format title page should include 5 elements: running head, your paper’s title, your name, your University and author note (if required by your professor).

Running head:Place the running head in your page’s header:
- use label “Running head:” then your shortened title (IN UPPERCASE LETTERS), align left
- place the page number in this same header, but align right, begin with page number 1
- this header should be 1 inch from the top. Some teachers say 1/2 inch is okay too.
Paper title:Place your paper’s title in the upper half of the page, centered, capitalize the first letter of important words in your title.
Your name:Place your name below your paper’s title, centered, double-space. If your paper has two or more authors, place the word “and” without quote between the names.
Your University:Place your University’s name below your name, double-space.
Tips:If your professor requires you to include his/her name, course title, etc… place these below your University name, double-space, on separate lines.

Is there an APA 9? We have the latest windows and it only has APA 6.

Hi Leigh! APA 6 is the most current edition.

I did not know this edition until now. It’s also good for academic ics.
