  • In-text citations consist of the surname(s) of the author(s) and the year of publication. If there is no author, use the title (or a short form of the title, if it is lengthy) and the year.

    3.2 Organizing a Manuscript with Headings


    In scientific writing, sound organizational structure is the key to dear, precise, and logical communication. This includes the use of headings to effectively organize ideas within a study as well as seriation to highlight important items within sections. Concise headings help the reader anticipate key points and track the development of your argument.

    Headings are not required, but they may be useful for the purpose of displaying hierarchal organization in your paper. There are a total of five heading styles. Levels of heading establish the hierarchy of sections via format or appearance. All topics of equal importance have the same level of heading throughout a manuscript.


    Table 1


    Format for Five Levels of Heading

Level of headingFormat
Centered, Boldface, Uppercase and Lowercase Heading*
Flush Left, Boldface, Uppercase and Lowercase Heading
3     Indented, boldface, lowercase paragraph heading ending with a period.**
4     Indented boldface, italicized lowercase paragraph heading ending with a period.
5     Indented, italicized lowercase paragraph heading ending with a period.

*This type of capitalization is also referred to as title case.

**In a lowercase paragraph heading, the first letter of the first word is uppercase and the remaining words are lowercase.


The introduction to a manuscript does not carry a heading that labels it as the introduction. (The first part of a manuscript is assumed to be the introduction.) Do not label headings with numbers or letters. For more than three levels of headings refer to the APA Publication Manual (6th ed., pp. 62–63).


3.3 Use of mathematics. Authors are asked to use mathematics only when its application does not compromise realistic analysis. When mathematics is used, the major steps in the argument and the conclusions should be made intelligible to a non-mathematical reader. Authors should put the mathematical parts of their argument into an appendix.


3.4 Display Equations. We strongly encourage you to use MathType (third-party software) or Equation Editor 3.0 (built into pre-2007 versions of Word) to construct your equations.

Do not use the support that is built into Word 2007 and Word 2010. Equations composed with the built-in Word 2007/Word 2010 equation support are converted to low-resolution graphics when they enter the production process and must be rekeyed by the typesetter, which may introduce errors.

However, if you have an equation that has already been produced using Microsoft Word 2007 or 2010 and you have access to the full version of MathType 6.5 or later, you can convert this equation to MathType by clicking on MathType Insert Equation. Copy the equation from Microsoft Word and paste it into the MathType box. Verify that your equation is correct, click File, and then click Update. Your equation has now been inserted into your Word file as a MathType Equation.

Use Equation Editor 3.0 or MathType only for equations or for formulas that cannot be produced as Word text using the Times or Symbol font.


3.5 Tables. Use Word's Insert Table function when you create tables. Using spaces or tabs in your table will create problems when the table is typeset and may result in errors.


3.6 References. List references in alphabetical order. Each listed reference should be cited in the text, and each text citation should be listed in the References section.


3.7 Footnotes and Endnotes

APA does not recommend the use of footnotes and endnotes because they are often expensive for publishers to reproduce. However, if explanatory notes still prove necessary to your document, APA details the use of two types of footnotes: content and copyright.

When using either type of footnote, insert a number formatted in superscript following almost any punctuation mark. Footnote numbers should not follow dashes ( — ), and if they appear in a sentence in parentheses, the footnote number should be inserted within the parentheses.




Scientists examined—over several years1—the fossilized remains of the wooly-wooly yak.2 (These have now been transferred to the Chauan Museum.3)


Do not use the footnote function in a word-processing program like Microsoft Word!


You can place footnotes at the bottom of the page on which they appear but footnotes may also appear on the final page of your document (usually this is after the References page). Center the word “Footnotes".


Content Notes

Content Notes provide supplemental information to your readers. When providing Content Notes, be brief and focus on only one subject. Try to limit your comments to one small paragraph. Content Notes can also point readers to information that is available in more detail elsewhere.

Copyright Permission Notes

If you quote more than 500 words of published material or think you may be in violation of “Fair Use" copyright laws, you must get the formal permission of the author(s). All other sources simply appear in the reference list. Follow the same formatting rules as with Content Notes for noting copyright permissions. Then attach a copy of the permission letter to the document.

If you are reproducing a graphic, chart, or table, from some other source, you must provide a special note at the bottom of the item that includes copyright information. You should also submit written permission along with your work. Begin the citation with “Note."
