How do you include an appendix in an APA paper?

Appendices and their format Each separate component usually has its own appendix. Label your appendix "Appendix" if your document only contains one (without quotes.) If there are several appendices, designate them "Appendix A," "Appendix B," and so on (without quotation marks) in the sequence in which they appear in the document. Include information about any additional material or resources that may be useful for the reader.

The simplest way to include an appendix is by using the \appendix command at the beginning of the document. Then all you need to do is list the contents of the appendix in order. When applied to a single component (for example, a chapter), this command produces a table of contents for the appendix. It can also create a list of figures or a list of tables for the appendix. Two final points: You can number each section in the appendix; and you can provide page numbers for the appendix as a whole. For example, page 123 of 124 would indicate that there are no more pages in the appendix.

An alternative method is to use the \appendixpage command. This command can be used anywhere in your manuscript to insert an appendix page. It automatically includes the required documentation elements (title, abstract, etc.) that are needed for an appendix page. Use \appendixpage when you want to include a complete appendix page with placeholder text instead of typing out the body of the page yourself.

Yet another method is to use the \input command.

How do you add an appendix to a report?

If you only have one appendix, mark it "appendix"; if you have more than one, label them with a capital letter (Appendix A, Appendix B, etc.) in the order they appear in the body of your assignment. Refer to the appendices by their textual labels. As an example (see Appendix A).

How do you format an appendix?

An appendix should be formatted in the following manner:

  1. You may have more than one appendix (aka appendices)
  2. Each appendix should deal with a separate topic.
  3. Each appendix must be referred to by name in bold font (Appendix A, Appendix B, Appendix C, etc.)
  4. Each appendix must be labeled with a letter (A, B, C, etc.)

How are appendices named in an APA paper?

Each appendix must be designated with a letter (A, B, C, etc.) based on its location in the report. Appendix A would be the first appendix mentioned in the document. Appendix B would be the designation given to the second appendix mentioned in the report. If there is just one appendix, it is simply referred to as Appendix 1. There is no limit to how many appendices may be included.

How do you list an appendix in a table of contents?

If there is just one appendix, it will be labeled "Appendix" in the Table of Contents and the text. If you have two or more appendices, each one should be labeled and titled with an identity. All of the formatting standards that apply to the body of your document also apply to your appendix. In addition, the Table of Contents requires that you provide a page number for each entry in your appendix.

The easiest way to create a Table of Contents for your appendix is to use the Chapter markdown element instead of the Appendices markdown element. This element works exactly like the Chapter element but instead of creating a new section it creates a new appendix.

Here's how your document would look with this change:

Chapter One: Appendix A - Some description of appendix A...

Chapter Two: Appendix B - Some description of appendix B...

Appendix A. Title of Appendix A


Appendix B. Title of Appendix B

Note that we changed the title of both appendices to avoid confusion. Also note that we cannot use Markdown citations with Appendix elements so we had to give each appendix its own unique identity.
