The template is based on APA-style guidelines summarized in my book APA Style for Papers, Presentations, and Statistical Results: The Complete Guide, available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Google Books, and Goodreads. The template is free to everyone but will be especially useful to those using the book. As an additional service to those individuals, I have also created an annotated version of the template. The annotated version contains callouts that show where to go in the book to learn more about correct APA style for specific sections of the paper. Here’s the link:
