No, but there are some APA style template available for Word. In office 2010 you can access them by:

  1. Choose New document
  2. When the available templates page comes up, type in APA in the search for templates box.
  3. There are many available, you will have to determine which one is best for you, though many have received ratings from other users.

Or you can go directly to Office online and find templates for Word, just enter APA in the search box.

  1. Everything I've read says DO NOT USE IT. APA part is formatted incorrectly in word. Search youtube and this will be very obvious.

  2. You are correct that the templates can be problematic. They have gotten a little better, but we tend to steer students away from them. If nothing else, they are tricky to work with, because of all the imposed formatting. Formatting the basics of your paper (font, spacing, margins, etc.) is easy to do with a click of a few buttons, and almost all databases now provide citations that can be pasted into your document and easily corrected for errors.
