For student papers that are not being submitted for publication—including theses—author notes are generally not necessary. It is the second page of the manuscript and is headed with the word Abstract. The abstract presents the research question, a summary of the method, the basic results, and the most important conclusions.
Because the abstract is usually limited to about 200 words, it can be a challenge to write a good one.
This means you're free to copy, share and adapt any parts (or all) of the text in the article, as long as you give appropriate credit and provide a link/reference to this page. You don't need our permission to copy the article; just include a link/reference back to this page.
You can use it freely (with some kind of link), and we're also okay with people reprinting in publications like books, blogs, newsletters, course-material, papers, wikipedia and presentations (with clear attribution).
This is the full title of the research paper, dissertation or thesis.
At the bottom of the page, center aligned, should be your name, your institution and the date of submission.
In this section, we look at how to write an APA-style empirical research report, an article that presents the results of one or more new studies.
The opening introduces the research question and explains why it is interesting, the literature review discusses relevant previous research, and the closing restates the research question and comments on the method used to answer it.An APA-style research report begins with a title page.The title is centred in the upper half of the page, with each important word capitalized.Here we consider each of these sections in detail, including what information it contains, how that information is formatted and organized, and tips for writing each section.At the end of this section is a sample APA-style research report that illustrates many of these principles.The introduction begins on the third page of the manuscript.The heading at the top of this page is the full title of the manuscript, with each important word capitalized as on the title page.A correctly formatted title page is very quick and easy to do, so there is no excuse for getting it wrong.It’s the very first part of your paper that anyone will see, so a glaring mistake here will create a bad impression, long before anybody starts to assess the quality of your work.Individual researchers differ quite a bit in their preference for such titles.Some use them regularly, while others never use them.
