Visuals & Appendices

Appendix / Appendices

If you have supplemental material for your paper that would be useful for your reader but distracting in the body of your paper, you can place this material at the end of your paper in an appendix or appendices. This supplemental material may include large visuals, detailed research study results, surveys, questionnaires, etc.

Referring to Appendices

Always refer to appendices in the body of your paper.


This study displayed the preferred outcome (see Appendix A).
See Appendix B for an example of the survey that was administered.

Placement of Appendices

Each appendix must be on a separate page.

Appendices are placed after the reference page(s).

Formatting Appendices

Labels and titles of appendices should be centered and bold (as a level 1 heading).

Text in an appendix should be left aligned.

Labelling Appendices

Label appendices in the same order that they are mentioned in your paper.

  • If you only have one appendix, label it Appendix.
  • If you have two or more appendices, label them alphabetically: Appendix A, Appendix B, and so on.

Include the title of the appendix below the label.
