Changes to Student Paper Format in APA 7th ed.

  • Student papers no longer have a “running head”
  • Student title pages have been simplified (see sample paper, above)
  • Use one space after a period at the end of a sentence unless an instructor says otherwise.
  • Use quotation marks around linguistic examples rather than highlighting these examples with italics. For example, one might write that a computer user should press the “F” key, rather than press the F key.
