- APA research paper’s format is based on the following guidelines: a running head at the top of each page, page header, cover page with detailed information on its author and a full title, as well as the abstract of a paper.
- Turabian research paper’s format. Its peculiarity is that you are supposed to include footnotes and endnotes in your paper.
