APA Formatting: Main Body

Typing the Main Body of your paper

Starting on a fresh page, set up your header for the rest of your document. Type out the full title of your paper center justified, and start typing your paper. Remember, include your in-text citations while writing your paper. Even if you're not sure how to properly format a citation, try. It's always easier to come back later and make corrections than it is to go back and figure out where each citation should go.
