FORMATTING OTHER SECTIONS

References and Citations

Ref­erences should be listed alphabetically by author at the end of the paper and referred to in the body of the text by Name (date). Skipping a line between each reference is preferred.

Figures and Tables

Figures and tables should be placed as close as possible to where they are cited. Center figures and tables between the margins with one blank line above and below. Place captions (e.g., “Figure 1:  Caption text.”) after the figure/table (see example above). All figures and tables should be prepared in a professional manner.

Footnotes/Endnotes

The use of footnotes is discouraged, but endnotes are acceptable.

Equations

All equations should be placed on separate lines and numbered consecutively, with the equation numbers placed within parentheses and aligned against the right margin.

R1 = f(X1)            (1)

Appendices

The Appendix should immediately follow the body of the paper (using the first-level heading “APPENDIX”) and precede the references. If there is more than one appendix, number each consecutively.

References

References should follow the APA style. Examples:

Alavi, M. (1994). Computer-Mediated Collaborative Learning: An Empirical Evaluation. MIS Quarterly 18(2), 159 – 174.

Introna, L. (1997). Management, Information and Power: A narrative of the involved manager.  London: MacMillan.
