APA 7th Edition Style Ribbon in MS Word

Have you always wanted an APA-7th-Edition-formatted template for creating APA-formatted MS Word docs? Now you can have one, made by Laura Ballard and me.

(1) Right click on this link (Mac users, Right-click by holding down the Control key and clicking) and select “Save file,” “Save file as,” “Save link,” or “Save link as” to download this template to your computer. Save the file as a template (.dotx) in your Trusted Templates or Templates folder on your computer. (If you don’t right click you will see a web page with gibberish–so try again.)

(2) With this template, you will find creating a Table of Contents (TOC) easy to do using the auto TOC features in MS Word. To see how to create a Table of Contents (or Table of Tables, Table of Figures, List of Appendices, etc.) in Word, click on the link below. There are also a lot of video tutorials on YouTube on how to do this.
