The title should be centered vertically and horizontally on the page and include the (a) title of your paper (or assignment name), (b) your name, (c) the course title, (d) professor’s name, and (e) the date the draft was submitted (making sure to change this date when submitting the final draft). It should also be double spaced. *Note: Some professors may want students to also include course and section numbers with the course title.
A major part of your grade is based on a term paper. It should focus on atopic appropriate to this course. My preference is for you to pick a country,other than the 10 or so we talk about explicitly. Take one or moreproblems that country is experiencing, describe how it came to be, what thecurrent situation is, and what if any solutions appear possible. In Africa, forinstance, you could write about the new Congo Democratic Republic and itsstruggles to become a "real" nation rather than a collection ofself-conscious ethnic/tribal groups. Or about Angola and the role that itsresources of diamonds and oil have played in its ongoing civil conflict. Butunless you have special expertise through residence or travel there,don't write about Nigeria or South Africa. Ditto for Israel, Ireland, Germanyand so on.
Not all writing assignments require abstracts, but they are often expected for longer papers. However, if you are required to include an abstract, begin on a new page, with the word Abstract at the top (no bold or quotation marks). The abstract should be 150-200 words (though your instructor may specify another length. Use all the standard formatting guidelines (double-spacing, etc.) discussed above— do not indent the first line of the abstract, like you would most paragraphs. (The Latin text used for the examples comes from .)
For every in-text citation there must be a reference listed and vice versa. This reference is a complete acknowledgement of the author(s) and information on how the audience can find the referenced material.
The reference page, similar to the title page, is completely separate from the rest of the paper. After you have finished writing your paper and entered the last period in the document, hit enter to add an extra space, then press the “Insert” button in the tool bar. From the resulting that drop down menu select “Page Break” and a new page will appear where you can record your reference list.
Here is the correct Harvard-style format for this reference type:
If you are quoting more than four lines of material in your research paper, do not use quotation marks. Such a long quotation can be difficult to follow if kept within the body of your paper. Instead, separate this text with two tabs from the left margin, and block indent the entire quotation. The only exception to not using quotation marks in this instance is when you are actually quoting speech within the long quote. In such a case, put only the speech portion of your quote in double quotation marks.
APA section headings: APA document format encourages the use of section headings within longer papers. In fact, APA provides specific headings to use for empirical studies, which should have the following main sections: Introduction (not actually given a heading), Method, Results, Discussion, and Conclusion. Unless you are a psychology major, most of your papers will use other headings more appropriate for the paper you have been assigned. As you determine the appropriate section labels, note the standard formatting for headings indicating new sections or subsections. The following diagram shows the appropriate format for section headings and subsections at various levels:
Write four pages, double space, a paper analyzing the dual (double) government –how two governments function—using Immanuel Kant’s duty ethics and the Social contrast theory. In corporate ideas about how the social contract theory has shaped the creation of the US constitution. Follow ether APA or MLA writing standards
An APA paper includes a number of standard parts, although some projects do not require all the parts. Consult your assignment instructions or instructor for guidance on what is expected. Note also that each of the parts discussed below begins on a new page. Page numbering is continuous throughout, beginning with the title page. Usually only the body pages count, however, when determining whether a paper meets an assignment’s required length in pages or word count.
Following the MLA paper format helps increase the readability of your paper and helps your grade. Whenever you are unsure of the correct formatting, check the MLA guide to determine which, if any, MLA paper format rules applies. In addition, parenthetical citations (in-text citations) should be documented properly with all your sources cited correctly. When you follow these guidelines, your paper is a stronger one that has easy readability.
Your paper must be double-spaced. It is conventional to single-space footnotes and bibliographies, leaving a blank line between entries.
