Title of the Paper
Begin the paper here. Double space the entire document. Indent the first line by one-tab key (0.5 inches). University of Phoenix accepts one space after a period. The first paragraph is the introduction in every paper and does not contain a subheading. Provide a brief overview of the general topic and end with a preview of the topics discussed in the paper. Unless the paper is a self-assessment analysis or a reflections paper, never write using first person: I, me, my, mine, etc. Never write academic papers using second person: you, your, yours, etc. Using editorial “we” and “our” is not acceptable. For more information on writing style and grammar, review the APA Manual, Chapter 4.
The final Level 1 heading in every paper is for the conclusion section and eliminates the need to add “In summary,” or “In conclusion” as the start of the final paragraph. The conclusion summarizes the key points made in the paper with no new information or analysis. The conclusion is simply a recap of the most notable information presented in the paper.
[NOTE: References are listed in alphabetical order. All references listed in the reference list must have an in-text citation from that source in the body of the paper. For additional examples of reference formatting, see Chapter 10 of the APA Manual]
