The title page of your APA Style paper includes a running header that is distinct from the header that leads off all other pages. As illustrated at the Purdue University Online Writing Lab's (OWL) website, create a header on your title page. Inside of it, you type "Running head:" followed by the title of your paper in all capital letters and the page number. On the title page, use "1" as your page number. Locate the title flush left on your paper and the page number flush right. As for your title, it should be no more than 12 words long. Avoid pointless words and abbreviations. Take up no more than two lines of space with your paper's title.
