Q. How do I format a title page with multiple student authors?

For our class we have to collaborate and turn in a support paper with 6 authors.


To format a title page for multiple student authors: 

  • The names of the authors (in this case, students) should appear in the order of their contributions, centered between the side margins.
  • If all of the students contributed equally, put the names in alphabetical order.
  • The names are all on the same line or two lines double spaced if there are too many names to fit on one line.
  • Example: Paul Jewell, Deon Marquette, and Susan Rodriguez.

(This is according to the APA Publication Manual, 6th ed. Table 2.1, pg 24.)

The APA Help guide has a sample paper, to see a sample title page.
