4 Running Heads

Running heads are not required at Bank Street (see APA Style Blog Post: Running Head or No Running Head? For Student Papers, APA Style Says Bye, Bye, Bye), but if your instructor insists that you use them, this is how to make them.

Please note that a running head should include no more than 50 characters (i.e., letters, spaces between words, and punctuation).

  • The running head is UPPER CASE.
  • It is placed flush, in the top left-hand corner
  • Use the same running head for all pages including your title page
  • It should be a CONCISE MEANINGFUL SNIPPET OF YOUR TITLE
