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


To see some sample outlines, visit the Purdue OWL.

The general rules of APA writing still apply, but there is not a strict APA format for outlines. Be sure to use:

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