APA 7th Edition

Although the APA does not limit writers to a particular font, writers should format their paper using an accessible font and maintain this formatting throughout the paper for a consistent, readable text (American Psychological Association, 2020, p. 44). Generally, 10 or 11-point san serif font (Calibri, Arial, or Lucida Sans Unicode) or 11 or 12-point serif font (Georgia or Times New Roman) are standard choices, but please check with your instructor or program regarding their preferences or requirements regarding font.
