APA 7th Edition Cover Page

Title Page Components

In the past APA didn’t really pay much attention to student papers, but in APA7 they have been explicit about how to create that perfect paper (it’s a simplified professional paper). In this blog post we’re just going to look at cover pages for an assignment.

No Running Head

A running head has never been required at Bank Street, although many students have placed then in their assignments and Integrated Master’s Projects (IMPs).
