Does the Public Benefit from Private Infrastructure Investment
- At the bottom of your essay prior to the reference list, should leave a line space and write the number of words.
- All papers should be paginated, beginning with the cover sheet/title page. Use an abbreviation of the title and the page number in the right hand side header (e.g., Fairtrade 1, Fairtrade 2, etc.).
- 1.5 line spacing throughout the paper. Use a size 12 font in a readable font.
- Use one-inch (2.54 cm) margins on all four sides of the paper. Leave a line space or indentation for a paragraph.
- Use Harvard format for all citations of quoted material, paraphrased material, and for the References page. Refer to Gillett et al. (2009) and to the library guidelines on the Harvard referencing conventions.
- Develop a strong title for the essay. The title can help you identify the key focus. It provides a reader with the most succinct summary of your argument.
- Pay attention to your introduction and conclusion. Your introduction is where you lead the reader into your mind, your writing style, and your world. Introductions establish the background to your argument and specify your thesis – what you are going to do – and your viewpoint. In the conclusion you remind the reader of the question you set out to answer, you answer it and you provide evidence drawn from the points you have developed to support that answer. The introduction and conclusion work together to set out your purpose and to show you have achieved it.
- Use the work of other writers to demonstrate that you have read widely and that you understand and can use what you have read to support your own points. See Gillett et al. (2009) and the library guidelines for using quoted material. A few basics:
- Remember that a quote of more than four lines/forty words must be indented 5 spaces from the left margin. Because it is a long quote clearly set aside, quotation marks/inverted commas are not needed.
- Never just drop a quote into a paragraph. Introduce it with a full sentence followed by either a comma or a colon, e.g., As Dorothy Parker said, ‘You can lead a horticulture but you can’t make her think.’ OR Dorothy Parker was notorious for her witty use of language: ‘You can lead a horticulture but you can’t make her think.’
- Use ellipses to indicate you have left out a word, e.g., Dorothy Parker’s line, ‘you can…horticulture…think’ is notorious.
- If you are going to add a word or a letter to a quote, use brackets to indicate the changes are yours and not the author’s, e.g. Parker implied ‘you [could] lead a horticulture but you [couldn’t] make her think.’
- Proofread for punctuation, grammar, and spelling. They all matter. A spell check will not always read the context of a word. They’re, their, there will show as correct spelling but are not interchangeable.
