Formatting requirements differ from journal to journal. Although most social science journals require APA formatting, journals may have specific guidelines for styles other than APA. Style guidelines, including those for formatting, are typically provided on the journal’s web page. Read the journal submission guidelines carefully and ensure you have applied any layout, content, or style requirements in your article for submission.
