APA Cover Page (Title Page)
Examples

According to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA), there is no such thing as a "cover page" under that writing style standard. In fact, APA refers to such a page as a "title page".

The APA manual states that all manuscripts (i.e. papers) published under that standard require a properly formatted title page composed of three elements: running head for publication, title, and byline of institutional affiliation.

Running Head
The abbreviated title of the paper will be used as the running head throughout the paper.

The running head should be typed flush left at the top of the title page(but below the manuscript page header) in all uppercase letters; not to exceed 50 characters including punctuation.

Title
The title should be typed in uppercase and lowercase letters, centered between the left and right margins and positioned in the upper half of the page. If the title is two or more lines, double-space between the lines.

Byline and Institutional Affiliation
Names of the authors should be typed in the order of their contributions using uppercase and lowercase letters, centered between the side margins, one double-spaced line below the title. Type the institutional affiliation, centered under author's name, on the next double-spaced line.

Below are links to some typical APA style title (cover) page examples.

History is not everything, but it is a starting point. History is a clock that people use to tell their political and cultural time of day. It is a compass they use to find themselves on the map of human geography. It tells them where they are but, more importantly, what they must be. John Henrik Clarke

MLA Format Cover Page

The Modern Language Association (MLA) does not require you to create a cover page when you complete your research paper, but some instructors may require you to have it. A paper with a cover page also looks more professional.

If your instructor requires your paper to have a cover page, he/she usually provides specific instructions on what you should put on the cover page. Here is the general MLA Format cover page: this page should include your university name, your research paper title, your name, your class, your professor name and your paper’s due date.

Here is how to format your MLA cover page:

Alternate First Page:

If your instructor requires a cover page, you may omit the main heading on your first page. Here is an example of the first page if a cover page is used. You still need your last name and page number on the first page and every other page.
