The university's template provides a pre-formatted title page for you to use.
A pop-up window appears when the template is first opened that allows you to fill in all the required information, including your official name, committee members' names, and title of your document.
However, some instructors do prefer a separate title page.
The title page is the very first page in your document.
This link will take you to the APA site where you can find a complete list of all the errors in the APA's 6th edition style guide.
Type your title in upper and lowercase letters centered in the upper half of the page.
Per APA style, you should not use abbreviations/contractions in your title, and it should not be more than 12 words in length.
Also you should avoid using words that serve no purpose; therefore, the title should be very concise and should clearly describe what the paper is about.
On the first line of the abstract page, center the word “Abstract” (no bold, formatting, italics, underlining, or quotation marks).
Beginning with the next line, write a concise summary of the key points of your research.
