Open the APA template linked above, save it to your own document name and location, and start typing your paper. Do not forget to delete any explanatory text or unnecessary information to your project, such as unneeded tables or footnotes.
Note: There are differences between the formats of the template for class submission and the template for professional submission. These differences are mainly concentrated on the title page. Most instructors will prefer the template for class submissions, but do check with your instructors as to what information and content they require for a given assignment.
These templates were created from consulting the Microsoft Office APA template, the Purdue OWL webpage, and the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, Sixth Edition.
