Your writing program will probably allow you to create a running head of this kind that appears automatically on every page.
Some teachers prefer that no running head appear on the first page. The list of works cited appears at the end of the paper, after any endnotes. The list contains the same running head as the main text.
If you lack 8½-by-11-inch paper, choose the closest size available. Some instructors prefer papers printed on a single side because they’re easier to read, but others allow printing on both sides as a means of conserving paper; follow your instructor’s preference.
Proofread and correct your research paper carefully before submitting it.
If your instructor permits corrections on the printout, write them neatly and legibly in ink directly above the lines involved, using carets (⁁) to indicate where they go.
Do not use the margins or write a change below the line it affects.
Double-space the entire research paper, including quotations, notes, and the list of works cited.
Indent the first line of a paragraph half an inch from the left margin.
This format is sometimes called , and you can set your writing program to create it automatically for a group of paragraphs. Give the source of the table and any notes immediately below the table in a caption.
Hanging indention makes alphabetical lists easier to use. To avoid confusion between notes to the text and notes to the table, designate notes to the table with lowercase letters rather than with numerals.
