In this set of steps and screenshots, readers are provided with directions on creating a Running head and a page header for manuscripts using the 2007 version of Word. If you are using the 97-2003 version of Word, you will need to use the other chapter of steps and screenshots we have created. In this chapter, you will be guided toward manually inserting a Running head on your title page and then a page header for the remaining pages of your manuscript.

Step one

First open a word document (Microsoft Word 2007 version)

Next, create the title for your manuscript and center it. Your title should be no more than 15 words, as per APA 6th edition, and should be centered left to right and about one-third from the top of the page. Your name and institutional affiliation will also be typed onto the title page, but not for this blinded version, the one that would be submitted to a journal for review.

After you have created your title page, then either use the page break or control/enter to force a second page. The second page will be your Abstract page.

Now that we have created two pages, we will now create the page header first for page two and then we will generate the Running head on page one.

  • √ Double click Header

  • √ Go to Insert
  • √ Click on Quick Parts

When you click on Quick Parts, go to Document Property, then Title:

You now have a place in which to insert your Running head/page header and a tool bar.

We will create the page header for page two and all of the following pages first. Notice that we are on the Abstract page which is page number two. As per APA 6th edition, we will type in a maximum of 50 characters of the title. Notice that the page header is entirely written in capital letters. Your page should resemble the following:

You must click out of title, but remain in the Header.

Step two: inserting the page number

  • √ Go to Design
  • √ Go to Position
  • √ Click on Insert Alignment Tab

  • √ Click on Right Alignment
  • √ OK

  • √ Go to Header&Footer
  • √ Click on Page Number
  • √ Current Position
  • √ Plain Number

**** Your page should resemble the following:

Step three: creating a different page

  • √ Go to Design
  • √ Go to Options
  • √ Click on icon with "Different First Page"

By following these steps, you have now created a page header that will be at the top of your manuscript for pages 2 through the end of the manuscript. We now have to create the Running head for page one.

To do this, move your cursor to page one, to where you have typed the title of your manuscript. You should notice that on page one, you do not have the page header that you typed previously. It is only present for pages 2 through the end of your manuscript.

Step four: adding a running head

  • √ Double click Header
  • √ Go to Insert
  • √ Click on Quick parts

Then the following screen will appear that will allow you to type in the information for your Running head for page one. Below the box where you will type in your Running head is a toolbox, the same one that was present when you typed in your page header information for page two.

When you click on Quick Parts, go to Document Property, then Title:

For the first page, we type in Running head: and then the same words we typed as our page header on page two.

Once your screen looks like the one below, where you have your Running head: followed by the same exact words you typed as your page header.

Now your first page, your title page looks like:

Step five: adding a page number

  • √ Go to Design
  • √ Go to Position
  • √ Click on Insert Alignment Tab

  • √ Click on Right Alignment
  • √ OK

  • √ Go to Header&Footer
  • √ Click on Page Number
  • √ Current Position
  • √ Plain Number

Your first page should resemble the following:

Moving your cursor to the second page shows that it reads as:

You can now create the rest of your manuscript. The page header on page two will reappear on the top of all of your remaining pages in your manuscript.

Questions & Answers

can someone help me with some logarithmic and exponential equations.
Jeffrey Reply
sure. what is your question?
ninjadapaul
20/(×-6^2)
Salomon
okay, so you have 6 raised to the power of 2. what is that part of your answer
ninjadapaul
I don't understand what the A with approx sign and the boxed x mean
ninjadapaul
it think it's written 20/(X-6)^2 so it's 20 divided by X-6 squared
Salomon
I'm not sure why it wrote it the other way
Salomon
I got X =-6
Salomon
ok. so take the square root of both sides, now you have plus or minus the square root of 20= x-6
ninjadapaul
oops. ignore that.
ninjadapaul
so you not have an equal sign anywhere in the original equation?
ninjadapaul

Kim Reply
or infinite solutions?
Kim
The answer is neither. The function, 2 = 0 cannot exist. Hence, the function is undefined.

anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
Damian
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
Azam
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.

the Beer law works very well for dilute solutions but fails for very high concentrations. why?
