APA 6th Edition Paper Template for Apple Pages (iWork)
As I’ve been writing papers for my class assignments, I’ve been working on fine-tuning an APA 6th Edition template for Apple’s Pages. I based my template on a Microsoft Word template provided by Dr. Paul Rose of Southern Illinois University Edwardsville.
Feel free to download and use the template (239k
.zip file) for your own papers. Just download, decompress, and then (for easiest use), place in your
~\Library\Application Support\iWork\Pages\Templates\My Templates\ folder.
.zip file doesn’t decompress properly and appears as a folder, you can either simply add “.template” to the folder name, or you can try downloading the uncompressed
.template file (314k).)
I’ve also created versions of the template file for Microsoft Word in both
.dotx (for Word 2007 or later) and
.dot (for earlier versions of Word). Feel free to download both in one
.zip file (35k
.zip file) or individually (
.dotx for Word 2007+ (36k) or
.dot for Word 2003 (55k)).
For easiest use: On a PC, place the templates in your
C:\Documents and Settings\(user name)\Application Data\Microsoft\Templates\ folder; on a Mac, place the templates in your
~\Library\Application Support\Microsoft\Office\User Templates\My Templates\ folder.
