Papers must double-spaced and use Times New Roman 11 or 12 point (or similar) font.
Margins should be one inch on each side of the paper.
Papers should end with a bibliography listing all the books and articles that you used to research the paper, whether you cited them or not. Please keep in mind the guidelines for number and type of sources.
You should provide a citation within the text of your paper each time you:
use direct quotes,
make indirect quotes — passages that rely on someone else’s wording, and
refer to evidence or ideas found in a book or article. Citations should be given by putting the last name of the author, the year the article was published and the page number in parentheses at the end of the appropriate sentence: “Some experts predict that up to 40 percent of East Germans will be unable to find work (McKibbin, 1991, 42).” Not citing the words or ideas of someone else is an act of plagiarism.
