The general format of American Psychological Association (APA) papers is used by scientists in an effort to standardise scientific writing. Type your essay on standard paper, in a neutral font like Calibri or Times New Roman. Use a font size of around 10-12pt. On the title page, your header should say "Running head: TITLE". Then beneath that, put the title again in the centre of the document, follow by your name and place where the research was conducted. You can see a sample title here:

The abstract page comes next. Here you write a summary of the key points that you have researched. It outlines briefly what you have done, how you have done it, and your conclusions. At the end of the abstract, you include any keywords to do with your project. A sample can be seen here:

Now you can start writing the bulk of the project under the headings Introduction, Method, Results, Discussion, References and Appendices. You can find out more about the APA format from the following links:
