Q. How do I create a formal outline?


To learn how to write an outline, visit the Purdue Online Writing Lab. (Click on Sample Outlines.)

There is no strict APA format for outlines, so just make sure the outline is:

  • Times New Roman font
  • 12 pt size
  • double spaced
  • one inch margins on all four sides

To see a sample paper, visit the APA Help guide.

For more assistance, consult your Campus Library/ARC.
