Ninth Edition CoverGraziano & Raulin
Research Methods (9th edition)

Title Page

The title page includes the title of the article, the list of authors, the institutional affiliations of the authors, and a running head. 

The title should be concise while still describing the focus of the study. Phrases such as "a report on" or "a study of" add little information and should be avoided. 

A running head is placed at the top of the title page. It is an abbreviated title with no more than 50 characters and spaces. When the article is printed in a journal, the running head will appear at the top of each page. 

Note that page numbering begins with the title page (page number 1) and continues serially for all the pages except the artwork (i.e., figures).
