I did a search online and there are several versions of the title page for APA Format. If you are wondering which version to use, this page contains information on how to properly format your cover page 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.|
