APA Style 6th Edition: Title Page, Running Head, and Section Headings



This video will show you how to set up your paper following correct APA Style guidelines in Microsoft Word 2010 for PC. This specific video focuses on making a title page, setting up a running head, and how to use section headings properly.

The steps should be very similar on every version of Word since 2007 for PC. On Word for Mac, I believe the steps are the same, but the interface is different.

Note: If the ruler is not visible for you, go to the View tab and check the Ruler box.

For how to make a Reference List:

For how to use In-Text Citations and Quotations:

    You are using keyboard shortcuts, kind of hard to follow even when I am pausing it.

    The school gave a case study using APA format and provided some details but nothing as comprehensive as this one. Please save this video if in any case someone might delete it.
    Thank you so much!

    Thanks so much for the tutorial. APA format is one of the most useless thing anyone needs to do in school. I've seen math more essential to life and not being taught in school.

    The video tutorial you developed is clear and easy for students to follow. May I have your permission to embed the video on our community college library website? Of course, we will give you credit for authorship.

    All this for a subjective formatting? What a waste of time if you ask me. But thank you regardless.

    This was a great tutorial. I was able to follow the examples step by step. It really made me more confident in creating a great paper instead of a good paper. Many thanks.
