Q. Is there a specific format when doing the outline for your APA research paper?


To learn about types of outlines and see samples, visit the Purdue OWL.

The formatting rules of APA writing still apply to your outline, so be sure to use:

  • 12-point font
  • Times New Roman
  • double spaced
  • For more information on APA format, check with the APA Help page.
