Your paper is to have a title page, introduction, well defined literature review(body), findings, conclusion, and reference pages. The paper must be at least 2,500 words.
Use graphs, charts, tables or figures.
The research paper must be at least 2,500 words supported by evidence (citations from
peer-reviewed sources). Note: the research should be thorough and exhaustive.
A minimum of five (5) peer-reviewed journal citations are required.
Formatting should be double-spaced, one-inch boarders, no extra space for headings, no
extra white space, no more than two levels of heading, page numbers, front and back

The left-hand margin must be 1inches (4 cm.). Margins at the right, top, and bottom of the page
should be 1.0 inch. (See exception for chapter title pages below.) The Research Report text may
be left-aligned (leaving a ragged right edge) or may be both left- and right-aligned (justified).
Double-spacing is required for most of the text in documents submitted during the Research
The text of the document is double-spaced. There should be no extra spaces between paragraphs

typeface or any settings on the word processor that would decrease the spacing between letters or
words. Sans serif typefaces such as Helvetica or Arial may be used for relatively short blocks of
text such as chapter headings and captions but should be avoided in long passages of text as they
Every document that is submitted must have a title page. The title page includes the exact title of
the research report, date of submission, the team name, and the name of each team member.
Chapter Title Heading, Subheadings, and Sub-Subheadings
It is required that submitted Research Report use no more than three levels of headings in the
body text. All headings should have only the first letter of each word capitalized except that nonmajor
words shorter than four letters have no capital letters.
Instructions for heading levels follow:
Level 1: Chapter Title Heading
This heading starts two inches from the top of the page, is centered on the page, and is set in 14-
point type. The first line contains the chapter number (e.g., Chapter 4). The second line is blank.
The third line displays the chapter title, is centered on the page, and is set in 14-point type.
Level 2: Subheading
Start the subheading at the left margin of the page, four spaces (i.e., two returns when the
document is set for double-spacing) down from the title, set in bold 12-point type. Double-space
(one return) to the subheading body text. Indent the first line of the body text five spaces.
Level 3: Sub-Subheading
Start the sub–subheading at the left margin of the page, double-spaced (i.e., one return when the
