Abstract

The abstract should be one paragraph of between 150 and 250 words. It is not indented. Section titles, such as the word Abstract above, are not considered headings so they don’t use bold heading format. Instead, use the Section Title style. This style automatically starts your section on a new page, so you don’t have to add page breaks. (To see your document with pagination, on the View tab, click Reading View.) Note that all text styles for this template are available on the Home tab of the ribbon, in the Styles gallery.

Keywords: Add keywords here. To replace this (or any) tip text with your own, just select it and then start typing. Don’t include space to the right or left of the characters in your selection.

Add Title Here, up to 12 Words, on One to Two Lines.

This starts your paper with an introduction. APA style assumes the first paragraph is the research introduction, so it is not appropriate to have the heading of Introduction. For a complete introduction, you would want to start by motivating the reader. Relate your topic in a way that makes your reader want to read your research. Second, the introduction needs to provide an outline of the paper. Introductions are often written after the research report is completed.
