Starting with the title page, place consecutive page numbers at the upper right-hand corner of the page, at least 1 in. (whatever your right margin is) from the right edge of the page, between the top of the page and the first line of text (the default setting on most word-processing programs, 1/2 in. from the top of the page, is acceptable).
Use the first two or three words of your title as a page heading on every page, including the title page and reference pages. Place it five spaces to the left of the page number, using the header function of your word-processing software to place it automatically on every page.
For more information on page numbering and page headers, see page 230 of the Publication Manual.
