Know Your Assignment

Before you begin ask yourself the following questions?

  • How many pages does your paper need to be?
  • Number of sources required?
  • What type of source can you use? (magazine, journal articles, book, etc.)
  • Do your sources need to be scholarly?
  • Which citation style format can you use? (MLA, APA, or Chicago)
  • When is it due? The Research Project Calendar can help you with time management?
