Your entire document should be double spaced with certain allowable exceptions for tables.
Follow APA’s rules for organizational headings: your top-level headings (most likely the chapters in your dissertation) are centered, bolded, and in title case.
The American Psychological Association or APA citation system is a very important and effective style of academic writing.
There are some basic general guidelines and conventions that should be followed while citing a dissertation using the APA citation system.
Second level headings are left-aligned, bolded, and in title case.
Refer to your APA manual or the OWL Purdue website for more information on headings.In this method, you can include the author’s name followed by the year of publication at the end of the dissertation.While using quotations directly from the source, be very specific.If you have only one appendix, title it “Appendix” (top of the page, centered, not bolded, or in quotation marks).If you have multiple appendices, label them alphabetically as “Appendix A,” “Appendix B,” “Appendix C,” and so on.For example this may include an abstract, table of contents, executive summary etc…Arabic numbers start from the main body of the essay.To achieve this you will need to use section breaks in your document.Change the number format in the Page Number Format window.It is easier to tackle the Page Layout first and create the section breaks in your document before you add the text.Turn the show/hide button on, this shows paragraph marks and other hidden (will not show on your printed document) formatting symbols, this will show your section breaks clearly.
