APA Format Term Paper: Great Example

All term papers are not created equally, some are clearly better than others. The content of the paper is the most important part of the term paper, if the student focuses on that and creates a great paper, then they only have to worry about how the papers is formatted.

The American Psychological Association (APA) format is a great way to format the term paper, if given the choice, a student should choose APA.  There are clear cut rules and the design layout makes it so that the student has a perfectly laid out design and they only have to place their information into it.  

There are several places to find a great example of the format of APA.  One place is Purdue University Online Writing Lab page. The OWL page from Purdue has a lot of research and example of the format, and they explain the rules of the APA style in case the student doesn’t have a handbook.
