- You are not required to have a cover page.
- Do not write an introduction or conclusion. Also, do not write an abstract.
- Always page break the reference page.
- Do you use apostrophe words like shouldnâ€™t, couldnâ€™t, etc. These words are considered informal and should not be used in an academic paper. Write out should not, could not, etc. Equals more word count too.
- Never write in the 1st person in an academic paper unless the instructions tell you to do so. These instructions do not.
- Donâ€™t share your feelings. Academic papers are about research and analysis, not about nebulous feelings and emotions.
- If you have a sub-heading, you should have a citation to support that sub-heading.
