Q. On an APA style paper, do I indent the first line of each paragraph?
Here are the guidelines for indenting body paragraphs in APA:
- Yes, indent the first line of every paragraph.
- Paragraphs: First line indentation: 0.5” or use Tab key once.
- The only paragraph not indented is the Abstract.
- If the Instructor requires an Abstract, it should be left aligned, with no indent.
