(Always ask your English  Research Paper Teacher if you have questions, or e-mail me if you don’t have a research paper class)

1. Use the "Yes Test" to make sure you have completed the paper correctly. (See below, and also in the Research Paper Final Copy with hard copy of sources)
2. Page Numbers/Cover Pages-

    • It is acceptable to have a page number on the first page
  • A separate cover page in NOT required; however, the first page must be properly titled.
