APA specifies the location, information, and style of a running head and page number placement on the title page, the body of the research paper, and bibliography:

  1. Running head (Body of paper) = Title of the paper in CAPS. The maximum number of characters in the title is 50. This includes letters, punctuation, and spaces.
  2. Example - THE BEST IN THE WEST
  3. Page number location = Upper right hand corner of each page. Page numbering for body of paper starts with 2.

Continuing from the previous slide, the number 2 has been inserted in the upper right-hand corner of the page.
