Q. How do you format the table of contents?


To format the Table of Contents for an APA paper:

  • Use title Table of Contents (centered on new page).
  • Change font: Times New Roman - 12pt.
  • Double space the Table of Contents.
  • APA does not have specific guidelines for a Table of Contents, other than font and spacing.

Helpful hint:  In Microsoft Word, click on References, then click on Table of Contents.
