  1. APA Style Essentials http://www.vanguard.edu/faculty/ddegelman/index.cfm?doc_id=796

  2. General Document Guidelines

  3. Margins • One inch on all sides (top, bottom, left, right)   

  4. Font Size and Type • 12-pt. font (Times Roman or Courier are acceptable typefaces)

  5. Spacing • Double-space throughout the paper, including the title page, abstract, body of the document, references, appendixes, footnotes, tables, and figure captions.      

  6. Alignment • Flush left (creating uneven right margin) 

  7. Paragraph Indentation • 5-7 spaces 

  8. Pagination • The page number appears one inch from the right edge of the paper on the first line of every page (except Figures), beginning with the title page.

  9. Manuscript Page Header • The first two or three words of the paper title appear five spaces to the left of the page number on every page (except Figures), beginning with the title page. Using most word processors, the manuscript page header and page number can be inserted into a header, which then automatically appears on all pages.

  10. Active voice • As a general rule, use the active voice rather than the passive voice. For example, use "We predicted that ..." rather than "It was predicted that ..."

  11. Order of Pages • Title Page • Abstract • Body • References • Appendixes • Footnotes • Tables • Figure Captions • Figures
