I need to write a lot of papers in APA format–that’s because I’m a grad student. And every time I do, I am so very grateful for the Word template that Dr. Paula Winke has made available. Not only is it set up with styles that you can apply to your paper, it also has all of the standard headings that you will need. And dummy text that tells you basically what to write in each section. If you need to write APA-formatted papers, especially if you are in applied linguistics, go get it and make your life easier, too!
