First Level One topic Heading

words Running head in upper and lower case letters followed by a colon. After the colon you list

a shortened form of the title or the complete title as long as it is less than 50 characters including

letters, numbers, punctuation and spaces. This appears only on the title page. In the header you

Citations in the text must include the author’s last name only and the year of publication

(Smith, 2007). If there are multiple authors you must include all authors names the first time you

cite them (Hunter, Phelan, McKeough & Stapleton, 2006) . If you then cite again from the same
First 2-4 words of your title followed by the page number 6

source you can shorten it to the first author and the words et al (Hunter et al, 2006). This is only

true if there is at least 3 authors. For sources with 2 authors always list both names. If the citation

is from a web site and has no date of publication then use the letters n.d. for no date (Jones, n.d.).

When you use the author’s name in the context of the sentence you must follow it with the

publication date even if that is an n.d. to show it is a citation. “Stapleton (n.d.) lists many ideas

on this topic.” If there is no author listed then use the title of the article as the citation (Internet

Security Issues, n.d.) and remember to provide the page number when using quotes. NEVER us a

web address or URL as the citation.

Conclusion

Your final level one topic heading will be conclusion. Here you make some concluding

remarks about the total paper. This will be followed by the reference page. The reference page

must start at the top of a new page. All other topic headings are placed immediately after the end

of the preceding topic. Before starting your references go to insert- new page. This will take

you to the top of a new page. References are to be listed in alphabetical order by the first entry.

This does not mean you reorder the authors’ names alphabetically. You use whatever the first

author’s last name is to decide where in the list that source should appear. Sources that were

cited using their title are alphabetized by the first word of the title except you ignore the words

A, An or The at the beginning of the title. So The World Atlas would appear under W not under

T. Every source that is cited in your paper must be listed on the reference page, but only sources

that are cited. Every source listing must be double spaced and have a hanging indent. The first

word of the source listing must match the citation as the point of citations is to help the reader

find the source in the reference list. In the reference list you use the authors’ last name followed

by the initial of their first name, never their full first name.
