Normal text. Double spaced, 3/4″ indent. “Chapter style” used with appropriate
header gives a 2″ drop for section first pages. You can use “Chapter style” with the paper title or
with routine paper headings to begin the paper (Introduction, Conclusion etc.). (A thesis requires
chapter name and number at the beginning of each new chapter).
1st Level Subheading
1st and 2nd level subheadings are started on the 3rd line after the preceding text (double
space plus one line). Headline style capitalization, no period to end. Normal text begins
on 2nd line after the heading. (This is really too short for a block quote!).
2nd Level Subheading
Normal text.1 or Normal text. Normal text. Normal text. Normal text. Normal text.
3rd Level Subheading

Specific Examples of Form in Use
When two headings connect with no intervening text, omit the extra line space. By
the way, a paragraph should be longer than one sentence.
Footnotes should be formatted so there is one line of space before each note.
If Your Heading is More Than 48
Characters Long, Split It Into Two Lines
Quotations that are five or more lines in length should be set apart from the rest of the
text as a block quotation. The format of block quotations should be single space with the
entirety of the quotation indented four spaces (0.5″) from the left margin. There should be
no quotation marks at the beginning or end of the citation. It is best to refrain from using
such a large amount of quoted material unless it is necessary to your paper.2
The format of footnotes should consist of the following information in the order
given: (1) authors name, (2) title and subtitle (if any), (3) name of editor, compiler or translator,
if any, (4) number or name of edition, if other than the first, (5) name of the series in which the
book appears, if any, with volume or number in the series, (6) facts of publication including
place of publication, publishing agency, date of publication, and (7) page number(s) of the
Enumerations in Text
Enumerations in the body of your paper should be formatted with parentheses before
and after each number as used in the paragraph above. If numbers are used to enumerate the
items in a list the periods following those numbers must all be aligned on the page.4
Do Not Leave a Heading Widowed at the Bottom of a Page Like This

Margins for research papers should be one inch on all sides. Margins for theses
should be one inch on all sides with the exception of the left side. Theses should allow for one
and a half inches on the left side for binding purposes.
All pages of a paper must be numbered. However, not all pages must have a number
printed on them. Preliminaries are numbered with lower case Roman numerals. Body text is
numbered with Arabic numerals. The number for the first page of each chapter (if chapter
divisions are used) is to be located at the bottom of the page and is to be centered within the left
and right margins. This holds true for the first page of a research paper also. For all subsequent
pages, the numbers should be located in the upper right corner of the page. All page numbers
should fit within the margins of the paper. Bibliography, Appendix etc. represent a section break.
They are numbered at bottom center for their first page. Page numbers are consecutive
throughout the work. Footnote numbering begins at 1 with each new chapter.
