Both APA style and Chicago style require a cover page, or title page. Your instructor may also require you to include a cover page on your paper and may provide specific instructions on how they'd like this formatted. 

In APA style, the title page should include the running head, page number, title of the paper, your name as the author, and the institutional affiliation. For example and some formatting information, see our FAQ: How do I do an APA cover sheet?

In Chicago style, the title page should include the title, your name as the author, the course information and the date. For an example and some formatting information, see our FAQ: How should a title page be formatted in Chicago?

For more information about formatting papers and citation styles, please visit our Citing Your Sources guide. You may also want to contact the Learning Center (UC Students) or Online Writing Center (COCE Students) for additional information about citation styles and paper formats.
