APA Style Highlights:
Your paper should include an interesting title (NOT CRIM 1100 Term Paper). Assignments
should be written in an approved APA 7th Edition font, double-spaced, with 1-inch margins.
There should be no extra spacing between paragraphs, and long journal article titles or authors’
first names should not be included (they pad the word count). If you cite correctly and include a
reference page, I will know exactly which article you are referring to.
If you are using section headings, do not start a new page: I want to see full pages of text within
the body of your paper. Words should be used for numbers from zero through nine, and numeric
characters used from 10 onwards. Keep writing formal: do not use colloquialisms (such as kids
rather than children) and do not use contractions (such as ‘don’t, can’t, or there’s).
