When a page number is not provided, such electronic documents (HMTL, webpage, etc.), writers should include a paragraph number. APA indicates that writers should use the abbreviation para. #; do not use the ¶ symbol; put a space before the paragraph number: Examples (p. 172) or (para. 12)
Just type you data with commas separating information: Insert, Table, Highlight your data and a 5th option will appear--Convert Text to Table. To make a graph out of the data, Insert, Smart Art or Chart and play around. Be certain and save first… Sometimes Word overloads and crashes when you start using Smart Art and tables.
To remove the sidewalls from tables, go to the middle of the Home taskbar, Paragraph, to the funny thing that looks like a window, now just unclick the left and right side walls and all vertical lines (as per APA).
Scholarly papers typically use headings to separate the paper into meaningful topic areas; however, do not have one heading right after each other. A narrative discussion needs to be between headings. APA describes five levels of headings (Table 3.1, p. 62). Writers should select the heading levels that best organize the information in the paper. Most student papers need no more than two levels of headings; a major heading and subheadings of the major topic. If a paper requires two levels of headings, use Levels 1 and 2, in that order (p. 63). Writers should either “use at least two subsection headings within any given section, or use none” (Section 3.02, p. 62). In other words, your papers should not have only one subheading per section. If you choose to include headings, you must include at least two headings per section. Bold all headings according to the 6th APA Manual except level 5. For Chapter heading use level one and then use necessary levels of headings in order (i.e., 2-3-4-5) without skipping any one level.
First Paragraph The first paragraph sets the tone and provides direction for your proposal. Ensure that you have a solid topic sentence and all the connecting details are relevant.
First Word APA does not allow two consecutive sentences or paragraphs to start with the same wording.
