Starts flush against the 1 inch margin [no indents] on the left and is completed as one block paragraph. A maximum of 120 words. TABLE OF CONTENTS The table of contents includes the headings for all the sections of your paper, along with the page numbers on which the sections begin. With short papers (5 pages or less) you typically do not need a table of contents page. However, for longer papers (over 5 pages) you should have a table of contents.. If you have tables or figures in the text of the paper, identify them by title and number, and place them in the table of contents in the same order as your paper. Do the same with the appendix. If you have only one appendix, it is not assigned a letter and is referred to only as the “Appendix.” Table of Contents INTRODUCTION SITUATION BACKGROUND Issue Identification Issue Stakeholder Perspectives Stakeholder Opportunity Identification # Stakeholder Perspectives Stakeholder # PROBLEM DEFINITION PROBLEM # END STATE GOALS # REFERENCES REFERENCES # APPENDIX APPENDIX # Table 1: Issues and Opportunities pg # pg # pg # pg # pg pg pg pg pg pg pg # Table 2: Analysis oof Alternatives Table pg # Three Levels of APA Headings Centered Uppercase and Lowercase Heading Centered With Bold Typeface With Flush Left Upper and Lower Case With Bold Typeface Level One Level One Level Two Level Three Flus...
