APA 7th Edition
With the APA 7th Edition update to the PERRLA Word Add-In, editing your Title Page is very similar to the process for APA 6th Edition papers.
You'll notice some changes to the Title Page requirements as a result of new APA 7th Edition guidelines – including different requirements for Student Research Papers and Professional Research Papers, but the core process is the same.
APA 6th Edition
After you've created your paper, you can edit the information on the Title Page or edit the paper's Running Head in the Title Page panel.
FYI: the Running Head is automatically built using the Title of your paper. If you update the Title, the Running Head will be automatically updated as well.
- Go to the PERRLA ribbon tab
- Click Title Page
- Make any changes to the title page in the fields provided
You can also add additional information that wasn't included when you started the paper.
- Click Update Title Page in the panel
Voila! Your Title Page and Running Head will be automatically updated to reflect your changes.
MLA 8th Edition Papers
MLA formatted papers don't have a separate Title Page or include a Running Head. However, you'll use the same Title Page feature to edit the paper's title information for your MLA papers.
The Title Page panel for Discussion Posts only includes a field for the Title since they don't have separate Title information besides a post title.
Manually Editing My Title Page
In the Add-in, the Title Page is locked & un-editable by default. This is to protect the majority of our customers from deviating from standard APA & MLA formatting.
However, there are some professors who require non-correct elements anyways.
