      Abstract, Introduction, Conclusions, References, and Biographies. These must be 12-point font, bolded, left-justified, and each must have one blank space above and one below, as shown on the “sample Word document.”  Additional headings are optional but, if used, must follow the same format.
    • Page Numbering
      The pages should not be numbered.
    • Word Document Page Setup
      Except as noted otherwise, all text must be Times New Roman with a 12-point font.

  2. Bibliographic Information (following the body of the paper)
    Between the end of the text and the bibliography, there must be one blank space.  The bibliography must have the same margins and font size as the body of the paper.  For help with setting up your references, follow the examples in the Formatting Guide for References. Consider each author as a separate paragraph, skipping one line between each author. The authors’ names must be in capital letters with a maximum of ten (10) lines of text per author.
