APA's Publication Manual does not provide formal guidelines for creating outlines.
When asked to do an outline in APA style, we follow the advice of the Official APA Style Blog's "My Professor Says..." entry and recommend that you use:
- Times New Roman font
- 12pt font
- double spacing
- 1 inch margins
If you are handing in the outline for a class assignment, a cover or title page would also be included.
We also recommend that you use a standard alpha-numeric outline.
