According to the template, include a formatted Table of Contents (TOC) and use at least three levels of headings in your paper as defined by APA Section 3.03 in milestone documents. These headings will link to form your TOC, which, if set up correctly, is created automatically in MS Word. Use one of the following suggested approaches to automatically format your TOC:
- Use the built in MS Word automatic “Create a Table of Contents” feature. In MS Word help, type “Create TOC”
- In the Dissertation Center, access the handout named, “Table of Contents.” Several tutorials can be found on the Internet as well.
Your paper should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards. Review APA Form and Style.??Be sure to adhere to Northcentral University’s Academic Integrity Policy. View the Northcentral Academic Integrity Tutorial to refresh your knowledge of how to achieve academic integrity.
