Unless you are using a typewriter or writing with quill and ink, the formatting of your paper will invariably involve the mastering of certain digital literacy skills.


• Each page is numbered consecutively.

• A standard serif font, such as Times or Times New Roman is used.

• The font size is 12 points.

• Line spacing is double-spaced with one-inch margins at top, bottom, and sides.

• The title of my paper clearly relates to its contents, to your research question, or to the essay’s writing prompt. 

Tables, Illustrations, and other Matter

• Tables and illustrations are properly captioned and include sources.

• Tables do not split across pages.

• Abbreviations are properly spelled out in their first occurrence or are included in a table of abbreviations.
