Each section of your paper should have a heading and should be
center justified. All papers should include an introduction paragraph
which tells the reader what you are writing about and/or the purpose of
your paper. At the end of your paper there should be a summary paragraph
where the major thoughts/concepts of your paper are summarized.
Anytime you reference ideas or content form another work, you need
to provide an in-text citation which will correlate to a work on your
reference page at the end of the paper. This citation will be in the
first sentence which begins to reference that work and includes the
author’s last name and the date of publication. There are two basic ways
to accomplish this:
1. According to Morton, the author’s name can be included in your
sentence which would be followed by the year of publication in
2. It is more common to just include the author’s name with the year of publication in parenthesis (Morton, 2016).
At the undergraduate level, direct quotations from your references are discouraged; do not do it.
For works with three or more authors, the first time the ideas are
referenced you will need to include all the names in your citation
(Morton, Packard, & Johnstone, 2017). Any additional references to
that work may be cited without all the names (Morton et al., 2017).
It is my expectation that you will be citing references from peer
reviewed journal articles found in the Kaplan library. If you have any
questions on how to do that, then ask for an overview at the end of
seminar. No online sources or webpages will be accepted as references.
In the reference list of this template I have included examples
showing how books and journal articles are referenced. Please pay
attention to the punctuation, the use of capitalization and, the use of
italicized text. The basic rules of using punctuation, capitalization
and italicized text can be found at
https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/05/ . The reference list
should be started on a new page; label this page “References” centered
at the top.
