Running head: TITLE OF YOUR PAPER 1 Title of Your Paper Your Name Colorado Technical University Online TITLE OF YOUR PAPER 2 Abstract An Abstract is optional for your assignments. A well-prepared abstract is the most important single paragraph in an article or paper. The subheading should be un-bold, initial capped, and centered at the top of page 2. Word limits vary from journal to journal and typically range from 150-250 words. Type the abstract itself as a single paragraph without paragraph indentation. Use the present tense to describe conclusions drawn or results with continuing applicability. Use the past tense to describe specific variables manipulated or outcomes measured. Please see APA pp. 25-27. For a five to 10-page paper, your Abstract should not be over ½-page of doublespaced text in length in 12-point Times New Roman (TNR) font. Do not include any cited statements in your Abstract paragraph. Do not right-justify any of your body text paragraphs. Just left-justify your text with a jagged right edge. Your margins should be 1” on all four edges of your paper. TITLE OF YOUR PAPER 3 Title of Your Paper [Level 1 Heading] Your introductory paragraph goes here. Always include this introductory paragraph on every assignment. Do not use “Introduction” as your subheading for this introductory paragraph. In your introductory paragraph, you should tell the reader what is in your paper, what your reader should expect, and a roadmap of your paper. Your introductory paragraph should be comprised of three to six short sentences. Since you already did the research work and have already written this paper, you should not write this paragraph in the future tense using such words as “will.” In other words, do not say, “In this paper, I will analyze….” Instead, write this paragraph in either the present tense or past tense depending on what you are addressing. Furthermore, guard against anthropomorphisms. In other words, avoid writing statements like, “This paper analyzes….” Since this paper is an inanimate object, it cannot analyze anything. Only you as the author can analyze anything. Hence, you would say, “In this paper, I analyzed….” Additionally, do not use “we” instead of “I” unless you have a co-author, which you do not. First Level 2 Subheading Running head and page numbers [First Level 3 subheading]. The Page Header consists of both the Running head and the page number. The Running head should be flush left and one-half inch from the top margin, and the page numbers should be flush right on the page and on the same line as your Running head. The cover/title Page Header should consist of the words “Running head” followed by a colon, one space, and the title of the paper in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. All subsequent pages should include only the title in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. The Running head is an abbreviated title (or complete title if it is short) printed at the top of the pages of manuscript or published article to identify the article for readers. The TITLE OF YOUR PAPER 4 Running head should have a maximum of 50 characters counting letters, punctuation, and spaces between words or it should have five words maximum (instructor’s mandate), whichever is shorter. Do not bold your Running head. Please see APA p. 23, Section 2.01, and pp. 229-230, Section 8.03. Identify the cover/title page with the page number 1. Cover/title page [Second Level 3 subheading]. Please ALWAYS provide a complete cover/title page for the selected assignments that you upload as a Microsoft Word file. Include all of the three required pieces of information in the center of your cover/title page as shown on page 41 of the APA Manual (6th ed.). Remember, even the lines of text on your cover/title page should be precisely double-spaced. Everything in your assignments should be in Times New Roman (TNR) 12-point font. That includes all of the lines of text on your cover/title page information block as well as your Running Head and page numbers. Information block [Third Level 3 subheading]. To center your three-lines of text of your information block on the horizontal centerline of your cover/title page, insert 10 doublespaced spaces between the top margin and title of your paper. Please include the following three un-bolded lines of information in your cover page information block that you should precisely double-space between lines and centered on your cover page on both vertical and horizontal centerlines: 1. Include your student-created title of your paper in the top position of the information block (limit it from one to five words max.), e.g., Types of Disasters 2. Your name, i.e., John Doe 3. University name, i.e., Colorado Technical University Online Items 2 and 3 remain constant for all MS Word assignments in the course that you must upload to your instructor. Item 1 changes with each assignment. TITLE OF YOUR PAPER 5 Page break [Fourth Level 3 subheading]. Please dispense with the practice of repeatedly hitting the “Enter” key to get from your last line of text to the top of the next page. The problem with doing that is your title on the next page will move up or down depending on whether you are subtracting lines of text on previous pages or adding lines of text. Do you sometimes notice how the title of your paper is several lines down from the top margin of the paper? To preclude that from happening, backspace until you get to the end of your last line of text on the previous page. Then, go to the “Insert” tab on the Tool Bar, click on it, and then click on the “Page Break” icon. Your cursor will jump to the top line of the next page. This process will avoid text creep as you have when you repeatedly hit the “Enter” key to get to the top of the next page. Headings and subheadings [Fifth Level 3 subheading]. Please use bold subheadings throughout your text to highlight your major topics. Your paper title should be the only Level 1 heading that is located at the top-center of the first page of the body text (usually on page 2). All subsequent subheadings at Level 2 should be bold and flush left on the page including your “Conclusion” subheading—with the exception of the “References” subheading. Please indent Level 3 subheadings by ½” with initial cap on the first word, lowercase all other words except proper nouns, bold type all words, and place a period at the end. Then, make two space-bar spaces and start your text sentence immediately following the subheading. Please follow the headings and subheadings levels as shown in APA p. 62, Section 3.03, and Table 3.1. Subheadings should be one to five words in length (max.). Do not end any subheading with a colon. Do not use complete sentences for subheadings. Do not label headings with numbers or letters. Please see APA p. 63, two-thirds down the page. Space between sentences [Sixth Level 3 subheading]. Use two space-bar spaces between all sentences (i.e., after one sentence ends and before the next sentence begins), not one TITLE OF YOUR PAPER 6 space. See APA p. 88, first bullet down, last sentence. Consistently use two spaces. Do not mix one, two, and three spaces throughout your text. Please go through all of your papers and consistently insert two space-bar spaces between all sentences. Second Level 2 Subheading First level 3 subheading. Your paragraph starts here. Second level 3 subheading. Your paragraph starts here. Third level 3 subheading. Your paragraph starts here. Conclusion Your Conclusion paragraph goes here. Always include this Conclusion paragraph on every assignment. Be sure to use a bold “Conclusion” subheading before your paragraph. The conclusion summarizes the major points, findings, issues, or recommendations of your paper. Start your conclusion paragraph with “In conclusion, yada, yada, yada, yada.” Your Conclusion paragraph should consist of three to six short sentences. Do not include any cited statements in your Conclusion paragraph. TITLE OF YOUR PAPER 7 References Your first reference entry goes here. One of your reference entries must be your assigned textbook [Note that all of these “dummy” reference entries have built-in hanging indentations]. Your second reference entry goes here. You must have a minimum of two reference entries and two associated in-text citations for every assignment. The other reference entries should be peer-reviewed, scholarly journal articles and books. Your third reference entry goes here. References acknowledge the works of previous scholars and provide a reliable way to locate them. Start the reference list at the upper margin on a new page. The plural word “References,” without a colon following it, should appear in uppercase and lowercase letters (neither ALL CAPS nor in bold type), centered on the page. Double-space all reference entries. The APA publishes references in a “hanging indent” format, meaning that the first line of each reference is set flush left and subsequent lines indented by ½”. Please see APA pp. 37 and 180. You can find good examples of hanging indents on APA pp. 49-51 and 59. Your fourth reference entry goes here. Please arrange your reference entries in alphabetical order by the surname of the first author followed by initials of the author’s given name, and use the following rules for special cases: (a) Alphabetize by the author’s surname. (b) Alphabetize letter by letter. (c) Alphabetize the prefixes M’, Mc, and Mac literally, not as if they were all spelled Mac. (d) Alphabetize entries with numerals chronologically. Please see APA pp. 181-82, section 6.25. Your fifth reference entry goes here. On your “Retrieved from” just follow that statement with the universal or uniform resource locator (URL) with no punctuation at the end. Please TITLE OF YOUR PAPER 8 see APA p. 215, fourth bullet down. However, if you do use the organizational name after “Retrieved from,” then add the word “website” after the organizational name and before the colon. Please see APA p. 205, Section 7.03, third bullet down, and p. 206, items 33 and 34. Please delete all retrieval dates. Please see APA pp. 192 and 199. The APA no longer requires the retrieval date ever since the release of the 6th Edition. Your sixth reference entry goes here. Please do not activate or hyperlink your URL. If it is underlined, then the hyperlink connects the referenced document. Make that link inactive. Do not include the period at the end of the URL. Please see APA p. 192. To remove the hyperlinks from your URLs, highlight the URL, go to the “Insert” Tab on your toolbar and click on in. Look for the “Hyperlink” icon in the “Links” Area. Click on the “Hyperlink” icon. The “Insert Hyperlink” window will appear. Click on the “Remove Hyperlink” button on the bottom right-hand corner and close the window. The hyperlink should disappear from your URL. On reference entries, delete the period after the URL. Please see APA p. 192, first bullet down. ...
