Q. When do you put a table of contents in an APA style paper?
APA does not require a Table of Contents. If your Instructor requires one, follow the guidelines for an APA paper:
- Start a new page
- Use font: Times New Roman 12 pt
- Type Table of Contents (centered)
- No bold or underline
Helpful hint: Create a table of contents in Microsoft Word. Click on References, then click on Table of Contents.
The order of your APA style paper should be:
- Title Page
- Table of Contents (if required)
- Abstract (if required)
- Body of your paper
- Appendix (if required)
