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.
