From the Paper:

"The start of an APA paper should always begin with a title page. The title page takes the whole paper and puts it into one title or statement. The title should be well stated, and clearly define the purpose of the paper. "The title should be fully explanatory when standing alone" (APA, 1994). After one has a title that represents the paper as a whole, the next thing to do is insert the author of the papers name under the title. "The preferred form of an author's name is first name, middle initialand last name..." (APA, 1994). Also with the author's name is the institution the paper is being associated with. If there is no institution then the author's city and state of residence should be listed. The next element of the manuscript is the abstract."
