The paper should be typed in Times New Roman 12-point font (and use italic, bold or underline sparingly) and double-spaced (like this sentence).
The paper should be 1500-2500 words in length (not including the bibliography) with one-inch margins top and bottom, left and right. Your full name and the word count (not including the bibliography) should appear on the cover sheet. Large, clearly labeled diagrams may be used where appropriate. A bibliography and/or references typed in a consistent format should be included at the end of the paper. A 1500-2500 word paper (not including a cover sheet, diagrams, and bibliography) would fill 5-8 pages depending on the spacing between paragraphs. Papers that are too short lose points. And papers that exceed 2500 words had better be worth reading!
