The Research Paper must be at least 5 pages in length, not including a title page (optional) and a page of references. A minimum of three references must be used as sources and must be listed on the reference page. References should be listed in APA format, and any quote must be properly attributed. Again, students should use doublespace line spacing, normal 1-inch margins, and 11- or 12-point type in an easy-to-read font (e.g. Calibri, Arial, Cambria or Times New Roman). Papers should demonstrate the student’s ability to write in proper grammatical sentences and use proper paragraph structure. Be sure to include your name on the paper itself and also be sure to number your pages!
