Q. How would I make a timeline in APA?


There is not a specific format for a timeline in APA style, so just be sure that your timeline follows the proper format of:

  • Margins: 1" on all four sides (Top, Bottom, Left, Right)
  • Font: Times New Roman
  • Font size:  12pt 

Your Instructor may have an example of what the timeline should look like. Otherwise, if you do a Google Image search for "timeline design" you can get some inspiration for the many interesting ways a timeline can be arranged. 

To see examples of APA, visit the APA Help guide.
