This guide will help you set up an APA Style student paper. The basic setup directions apply to the entire
paper. Annotated diagrams illustrate how to set up the major sections of a student paper: the title page
or cover page, the text, tables and figures, and the reference list.
Use this checklist while writing your paper to make sure it is consistent with seventh edition APA Style. This
checklist corresponds to the writing and formatting guidelines described in full in the Publication Manual of the
American Psychological Association (7th ed.).
