APA Table Guidelines Purpose and general information Tables are useful for presenting a large quantity of information clearly and concisely. They typically display numerical data in columns and rows for easy classification and comparison (APA, 2010, p. 128). Tables do not duplicate text, but rather present new information. They should be interpretable without the text. Basic presentation and formatting Numbering: Each table is preceded by the capitalized word “table” followed by an Arabic number (e.g., Table 1, Table 2, Table 3). The number given to a table is determined by the order in which that table is referred to in the text (i.e., the first table discussed is Table 1, the second is Table 2, and so on). Capitalize “table” and do not bold or italicize the text (APA, 2010, p. 127). Titling: Each table has a unique title written directly below the table number. Titles should be brief yet descriptive. Capitalize each major word in the title (but not of, on, in, and , etc.). Italicize titles. Don’t put a period. Example:

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
