Course Research Paper Guidelines: Use established style requirements. Quickly speaking, the course paper format requirements are:
1. A major individual research effort.
2. Approx. 08 pages but that depends on the difficulty of the topic.
3. Double spaced, 12 pt font, 1" margins all around.
4. FORMAL DOCUMENTS ARE NEVER RIGHT JUSTIFIED. Justify left margin only.
5. Topic regarding ASC Updates and assigned by instructor.
6. Cover page, abstract, introduction, literature review section, then SEPARATELY your opinion section.
7. 5-7 references on a reference page.
I prefer footnotes although established style requirements presently use endnotes.
