Include the page header (described above) flush left with the page number flush right at the top of the page.
Please note that on the title page, your page header/running head should look like this: After consulting with publication specialists at the APA, OWL staff learned that the APA 6th edition, first printing sample papers have incorrect examples of running heads on pages after the title page.
Your essay should be typed and double-spaced on standard-sized paper (8.5" x 11"), with 1" margins on all sides. Include a page header (also known as the "running head") at the top of every page.
You should use a clear font that is highly readable. To create a page header/running head, insert page numbers flush right.
