APA Style 7th Edition Resource Guide

A resource to help you with your APA citations.

Paper Format Guidance

Title Page Guide and Sample Papers

The student paper format is usually used at the undergraduate level for class assignments; the professional paper format is usually used by graduate students and by those writing a formal research paper. Ask your instructors which title page format they prefer that you use if they have not specified one.

Table of Contents

APA provides no guidance for creating a table of contents. This is a technical/software issue; not an aspect of APA Style. You should consult your instructor about their preference as a table of contents can be constructed in many ways. We recommend that you review the links below or do an internet search to find information about creating a TOC.
