APA Help (7th Edition)

Heading Sample



   Use APA formatted headings and subheadings to organize the sections of your paper and to help your reader transition from section to section. A suggestion is to use headings that are in the order of the assignment and evaluation criteria or rubric so your instructor can easily see you have fulfilled each part of the assignment’s content requirements.

   The first heading level is centered, boldface, uppercase and lowercase lettering. Do not start a new page for each heading.


   Subheadings are formatted flush left, boldface, uppercase and lowercase lettering.

This sample will give you an example of heading levels used in the body of the paper

The APA Style Blog offers a short sample paper describing level headings and how to properly use headings within a paper.  Click this link to see the Heading Levels Template Student Paper
