APA Template

I've developed this Word template to make it easier to prepare journal articles that require subission in Word format and APA style. It's a work in progress and I may add additional styles and features over time.

  • Heading 1
  • Heading 2
  • Body Text
  • Insert Table/Figure Here
  • Reference

As a general note, most journal submission systems are not compatable with "docx", so it make sense to save the file as "doc" format.

Analysis Notes

The analysis notes template is a word template that I use for running preliminary analyses.

The main styles are

  • Heading 1: For broad sections of analysis
  • Heading 2: For questions and sections of analysis
  • Body text: for commentary

Response to reviewiers

response-to-reviewers.dotx is a template with styles that I use when resubmitting a manuscript following a revise and resubmit decision. The template has styles for organising reviewer comments, responses, and quoting changes. See the document for comments on the styles that I use.

Accepted version template

accepted-version.dotx is a template for converting submitted manuscripts into a more reader-friendly style for sharing on institutional repositories.

Working notes

working-notes.dotx is a template for workings. For every project that I am working on I have a workings-file. It is similar to a lab book used in some physical sciences. I use it for many things including: (a) brainstorming structure, (b) recording preliminary analyses, (c) making notes on readings that might be incorporated into a paper, (d) brainstorming journal submission strategies, etc. The page is designed to be as long as MS Word will allow. Thus, there are fewer page breaks to interfere with the flow. And ultimately, the document is not designed for printing. Heading 1 provides broad sections. Heading 2 is numbered and designed for specific topics.
