A Guide to Format and Citation
I. The basic format of an academic paper
A. The front matter
The title page (see Appendix B).
B. The text
Font, font style, and font size: Times New Roman, regular, 12. Margins: 1 to 1 ½ inches at top, bottom, and sides.
Spacing: text is double-spaced; bibliographies, footnotes or endnotes are single-spaced; itemized lists and indented block quotes are single-spaced. Page numbering: begin with first page of text, top right or top center of page. Abbreviations and numbers: see Turabian Manual 2.1 - 2.73 (pp. 14-38). Spelling and punctuation: see Turabian Manual 3.1 – 3.111 (pp. 39-63). Quotations: see Turabian Manual 5.1 – 5.38 (pp. 73-86).
C. The back matter
Appendixes: The appendix is a useful device to make available material that is relevant to the text but not suitable for inclusion in it. (See Turabian Manual 1.39 – 1.45, pp. 12-13 for more details). Endnotes (footnotes): Endnotes appear at the ‘end’ of the paper. Footnotes appear at the bottom (‘foot’) of each page. The citation style for endnotes and footnotes is identical. Ask your professor for his/her preference.
The note form has four parts, marked by an indented superscript numbering system: 1. author’s name in normal order (comma)
2. the title (italicized, no punctuation)
3. the publication date (in parentheses, comma)
4. a page reference (period)
