In the MS Word ribbon, go to Page Layout and select Margins. You'll see a series of options for margins. Just click on the one that matches your citation style. For both MLA and APA, margins should be set to 1 inch on all sides: 

  1. Click Page Layout > Margins.

Margins on the Page Layout tab

The Margins gallery appears. The Normal margin, which is selected by default, displays one inch margins on each side of the page.

  1. To select another page margin, click any of the other options in the Margins gallery, each of which displays the margin measurements.
