TITLE OF PAPER

LONG TITLES ARE SINGLE-SPACED ON ADDITIONAL LINES

The top margin is two inches for the first page only. There are two blank lines between the title and the text (or subheading if there is one). The left, right, top, and bottom margins are one inch for the rest of the paper. The first line of text is not indented for the first paragraph after a chapter or section heading.

For subsequent paragraphs, the first line of the paragraph is indented ½ inch. Use 12 point font and double space throughout.
First-Level Subheading
Keep two blank lines between the text of the preceding section and a subheading, regardless of the level. A first level subheading is centered, bold, and capitalized headline style.
Second-Level Subheading
There are two blank lines between the text of the preceding section and the subheading. A second-level subheading is centered and capitalized headline style.
Third-Level Subheading
A third level subheading is on the left margin, in bold, italics, and capitalized headline style. A heading should never be the last text on a page. If necessary, add extra blank space at the end of the page and begin the following page with a heading.
Fourth-Level Subheading
A fourth-level subheading is on the left margin, capitalized headline style. The page numbers for the non-initial page of the paper (or chapter) are located at the top right corner. The text of the body of the paper is double-spaced except for blocked quotations.

This is a blocked quotation. It should consist of five or more lines of text and be indented

one-half inch. Block quotations should be single-spaced. No quotation marks are used at

the beginning or the end of the quote. Double quotation marks within the original matter

are retained. The blocked quote is set off by a regular double space before and after the

quote. Note that regular spacing resumes after the end of the quotation.1


After a block quotation, return to double-spaced text justified to the left margin until you finish the paragraph.

Footnotes at the bottom of the page are separated by a two-inch rule.2 Maintain subsequent numbering in notes (which Word will automatically do if you use the footnote function). Indent the first line of the footnote with a superscripted number. Make sure a footnote and the text to which it refers are on the same page. When a word processor such as Microsoft Word does not accomplish this automatically, adjust the line spacing to “exactly” on the “paragraph” window.



THE SECTION BREAK BEGINS IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE PERIOD (.) AT THE END OF THIS NOTICE; BE CAREFUL NOT TO DELETE THE SECTION BREAK OR PAGINATION AND FORMATTING WILL BE OFF.
APPENDIX [#?]
APPENDIX TITLE

There should be two blank lines between the title and the text, and the first paragraph of text is not indented. Each appendix should have a number and a title, unless there is only one appendix, in which case the appendix would not need a number. Every appendix requires a heading, so if you are including a preexisting document you will need to type a heading (i.e., the appendix number and title) on that document so that it conforms to your numbered appendixes.

An appendix is formatted like the first page of a chapter, using a two-inch top margin. Locate page numbers at the bottom center of the first page of each appendix and at the top right corner of subsequent pages. If the appendix is already numbered, put those page numbers in square brackets. Page numbering for the appendixes is consecutive with the rest of the paper. Margins for the appendixes should be the same as the rest of the paper. You may need to reduce the content of the appendix to fit the margins.

THE SECTION BREAK BEGINS IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE PERIOD (.) AT THE END OF THIS NOTICE; BE CAREFUL NOT TO DELETE THE SECTION BREAK OR PAGINATION AND FORMATTING WILL BE OFF. IF YOU NEED TO DELETE THE APPENDIX, YOU WILL NEED TO DELETE THE SECTION BREAK BEFORE THE APPENDIX (THE SECTION BREAK AFTER THIS NOTICE GOVERNS THE BIBLIOGRAPHY).
BIBLIOGRAPHY

First entry here, hanging by ½ inch. There is one space between each entry, while entries are single spaced. The entries are alphabetized by author’s last name.


There is a two inch margin from the top of the page and the word “BIBLIOGRAPHY” and there are two lines between “BIBLIOGRAPHY” and the first entry. The page number should be bottom center on the first page of the bibliography and in the top right corner for each subsequent page.

1 The first line of a footnote is indented one-half inch. 10-point font is acceptable. Footnotes—unlike the main text of the paper—should be single-spaced.

2 There should be a blank line between each note and a blank en-space between the number and the first word of the note.
