To learn more about table format and captioning, consult your program’s style guide . Here's where to look, depending on which guide you are using:

  • APA: Chapter 5: Displaying Results
  • Bluebook: No information on table formatting included. Consult your instructor.
  • Chicago: Chapter 3: Illustrations and Tables [APUS login credentials required.]
  • MLA: MLA Style Central web site: Formatting a Research Paper
  • Turabian: Chapter 8: Presenting Evidence in Tables and Figures


See also the "Presenting Data" page on the library's Writing@APUS website section for Graduate Writing. This page has two sections:

  • Presenting Data: including info on qualitative and quantitative data presentation
  • Writing About the Findings: focuses on writing about the results of the data analysis, rather than how to do data analysis.


Here's how to locate:

 

  1.  Visit the Graduate Writing section of Writing@APUS (click here to see where to find it).
     
  2. Under the "A Focused Look" heading, click on the "Presenting Data" link!
