APA 7th Edition - University of Lincoln


The appendix (plural appendices) is placed at the end of the a piece of academic work after the reference list and contains additional material which supports the body of the work but which would be distracting or inappropriate to include within the text itself. The appendix can include text, tables, figures, or a combination of these.

Begin each appendix on a new page. Each appendix requires a label which is followed on the next line by a title which describes the subject of the appendix. The label should be Appendix or, if there is more than one, label each appendix with a capital letter, e.g. Appendix A, Appendix B, etc. in the order in which they are mentioned in the text. 

The label and the title should be in bold and centered and written in title case (i.e. capitalise all major words).

Each appendix should be mentioned at least once in the text and should be referred to in text by the specific label - e.g. (see Appendix A).
