APA Writing Basics

Always consult your assignment guidelines for course-specific formatting.

Things to know before you begin:

  • Font & Font Size: Be sure to use the same font throughout your entire paper. APA 7th Edition allows for the use of the fonts listed below.
    • Sans serif fonts: Arial (11-point), Calibri (11-point), or Lucinda Sans Unicode (10-point)
    • Serif fonts: Times New Roman (12-point), Georgia (11-point), or Computer Modern (10-point)
  • Margins: 1 inch on all sides
  • Paragraphs: All paragraphs (except in the Abstract) should be indented
  • Spacing: All of the text in your paper should be double-spaced (title page included)

Typical APA style papers have four main sections:

  1. Title Page
  2. Abstract
  3. Main Body
