Microsoft365 offers an APA template, however it isn't the easiest document to make changes too, when necessary. This guide will give you instructions on creating your own APA 7th edition Student Paper template to use as a base for all of your APA styled assignments.
This is a sample STUDENT paper that has been formatted in APA 7th edition, provided from APA. You can print or save this PDF to use for reference.
One of the most important things to remember for APA style formatting is consistency! The APA has not released guidelines on every single type of resource because the possibilities are endless. Just remember to follow the general formats when imputing information about a resource, include as much information as necessary, and be consistent! If you have questions about how to cite a particular resource, feel free to contact the library. Our contact information can be found on the left side of this page.
Referencing Materials without Pagination
Many online resources do not include page numbers. If citing a source that has no page numbers, cite the paragraph instead.
If paragraphs are numbered, reference the paragraph number in the in-text citation. For example, (Basu & Jones, 2007, para. 4).
If document includes headings but no page or paragraph numbers, cite the heading and number of paragraph. For example, (Verbunt, Pernot, & Smeets, 2008, Discussion section, para. 1).
If the document has no headings, page numbers, or paragraph numbers, provide a heading or section name. For example, (Golan, Kuchler, & Krissof, 2007, Mandatory Labeling Has Targeted section para.4).
Please see page 273 of the APA Manual, 7th Edition for further information.
