APA Style's rules about running heads
The best source for information about APA Style is APA itself.
· An APA Style blog post states the running head (along with the page numbers) appears in the header of every page (the header by nature is situated within the top margin of your paper; all the margins themselves should be set to 1 inch). Type it in all capital letters, make sure it is no longer than 50 characters (including spaces), and left justify it. Then add your page numbers, right justified.
· On the first page only, the running head is also preceded by the words Running head and a colon. On all other pages, just the running head itself and the page number appear, without the words Running head:
· APA has an example showing how the running head should appear on the title page and subsequent pages: http://supp.apa.org/style/PM6E-Corrected-Sample-Papers.pdf
