Tips about Headings and Subheadings
- The Headings are the main parts of your review: Abstract, Table of Contents, Introduction, Methodology, Analysis and Discussion, Conclusions and Recommendations, and References.
- Subheadings are GOOD. They provide a visual framework for your readers.
- Subheadings should probably only be used in the Analysis and Discussion and Conclusions and Recommendations sections.
- You don't need subheadings in the Introduction and Methodology.
Using MS Word to Create Your Table of Contents
Preparing Your Review for Your Table of Contents
- Write your review and insert headings where necessary.
- Using the template, the Main Headings (Heading 1) have already been formatted. They are bold and centered.
- Highlight a subheading (Heading 2) and click on the Heading 2 box in the Styles Section of the Home Menu at the top of your document in Word. This should make this subheading bold and left justified. Do this throughout your review.
- Highlight a sub-subheading (Heading 3) and click on the Heading 3 box in the Styles Section. This should bold this sub-subheading and indent it 5 spaces.
- You get the idea - continue this to your sub-sub-subheadings, but I don't think that you will have any of those.
