The APA Sample Paper provided by Axia College represents the consensus of several deans and other key academic officials at the College. The sample paper attempts to match APA style to the College's curriculum and academic services. Nevertheless, in advanced matters of style and formatting, there are sometimes differing interpretations of APA guidelines. While this sample paper is offered as a tool to help students with APA style, it is not a definitive or binding representation of format accepted by individual faculty members. As a result, for all unresolved style and format issues, it is essential that you consult with your faculty member before submitting your paper for a grade. You instructor is the final authority regarding acceptable format and style for all papers associated with his or her course, and the instructor's recommendations will prevail over this sample paper in the event that there is a difference between the two.

Note that the abstract paragraph is not indented. An abstract should be no longer than 120 words and should be concise and specific (APA, 2001, p. 13). Because an abstract is not always required for student papers, please adhere to your instructor’s requirements. An abstract is not always required for student papers.
