Preparing Student Papers Using APA Format
At some point in your education you will start to be required to perform scholarly research, prepare a written report and present your findings to others. This document should help you prepare for these activities.
I recommend creating the format of the document as you start the research. Use Microsoft Word to:
add the cover page
add headings with the header text and page numbers per APA format
create an outline of your major topics
use headings so you can apply a table of contents which you can easily update with a click
add the reference page
In APA formatting this is a certain way the paper must be organized. Here is a list in order of how your paper should be constructed and organized. Below each is a link containing a example to better explain each tier.
LSSU was one of five finalists that were invited to present papers at the conference. The other universities that were invited were: Cornell University, Michigan Tech, Air Force Academy, and University of Puerto Rico.
