HEADINGS, PARAGRAPH STYLES, AND LISTS

  • Use the heading, subheading, font, and paragraph styles appropriate for the publication you intend you submit your article to. [APA has a confusing hierarchy of headings.] For Sportscience the styles are shown in the templates for the article and are included in the Styles pull-down in the menu bar. Here are the main ones:

TITLE OF DOCUMENT: Optional subtitle 14-pt Arial
HEADING in 11-pt arial
Subheading in 11-pt Arial
Sub-subheading in 11-pt Arial
First paragraph in 11-pt Times New Roman...

  • Use this convention for an itemized list within a paragraph: (a) first item, (b) second item, and (c) the final item. If one or more items contain a comma, use this convention: (a) separate the items with semicolons, as shown in this example; (b) second item, etc.; and (c) the final item. Include the letters only if you refer subsequently to one or more of the items: for example, Item (b).

  • Use bullets to list points that are complete sentences, as shown throughout this document. [APA does not use bullets.] Exception: use numbered points if you want to refer subsequently to one or more of the points by number. For example:

Use a numbered list for items that could stand alone as paragraphs.

Do not try to include two or more paragraphs under one number.

Somewhere in the article you would have to refer to one or more of these numbered points, for example Points 1 and 2, above. Otherwise you would list them with bullets.
