APA format named after its publisher, the American Psychological Association, is one of the three most commonly used formats for citing sources in the social sciences. APA style, currently in its 6th edition, establishes guidelines for the organization of content, writing style, citing of sources, and preparing manuscripts for publication. Using APA format provides the reader with a familiar organization to follow.
General APA format includes the following guidelines:
• Double Spaced
• Standard-sized paper (8.5” x 11”)
• 1” margins on all sides
• Clear and readable font (recommended 12 pt. Times New Roman)
• A page header at top of every page
Major sections of an APA style paper should include:
• Title Page
• Main Body
It is important to pay attention to the details in APA formatting. An editor may be useful in the writing process to help you understand any errors and make corrections.
