Paper Preparation

The copies of papers submitted to the department must be reproduced on A4 plain, white paper.

The paper may be typed on a typewriter, a word processor, or a computer. Text should appear on only one side
of the paper.

The paper produced on a computer or word processor must be printed on a laser printer or letter quality printer.
The student should obtain prior approval from the Vice Dean for Graduate Studies and Research if the printer quality is in doubt.

Corrections should be made on the original manuscript before it is copied. The copies and/or originals
submitted to the Department of English may not contain errors covered by correction fluid or correcting tape.

Paper Organization

The final copy of the paper submitted to the Department of English is organized in the following order. The starred
items (*) are required in every paper; lists of tables, figures, or maps are required if they appear in the paper;
the other items are optional. Examples of formatting for these items are provided in the sample pages. Each
division listed (1-12) and each chapter begins on a new page.

*1. Title Page
*2. Signature Page
*3. Abstract in English
*4. Abstract in Arabic.

5. Dedication
6. Acknowledgments

*7. Contents
8. Lists of Tables
9. List of figures (or List of Maps)
Roman Numerals
*10. Text
Arabic Numbers
*11. Bibliography, Works Cited, References

12. Appendix

Paper Typing

A non-thesis paper should be between 35 - 50 pages, including notes, works cited pages, tables, and appendixes. In special circumstances, the student must obtain a written permission from the Vice Dean for Graduate Studies and Research to exceed the 50-page limit.

Every page is assigned a number, but numbers are not printed on the title page, signature page or dedication.
Items 1-9 in the list are numbered with small Roman numerals. Items 10-12 use Arabic numbers beginning with 1.
Numbers should then continue straight through to end of paper. Page numbering for the abstract or items 5-11
can be done in two ways. [1] page numbers appear on all pages. [2] The page number can be left off the first
page of a major division or a chapter with more than one page. Pages generally are numbered in the upper
right hand corner; usual placement is at least 3/4 inch from the top and 1 inch from the right edge.

Type size for the paper font must be 12pt Times New Roman, and should be consistent throughout the paper--in
text, figure captions, and table titles. Equations, formulas and words within figures must also be typed.

Minimum paper margins are 1 3/4 inches from the left edge and 1 inch from the other three edges. These
margins are essential for copying and binding. The right edge of the text may be either justified (all lines the
same length), or ragged (lines vary in length).

Spacing and indents
The body of the text is double spaced with about six single spaces per vertical inch. With 1 inch top and bottom

Quotations of four or more lines, table titles, figure captions, and chapter headings are single-spaced. Footnotes
and entries in the Contents and Bibliography are also single-spaced, with double spaces between entries.

The first line of paragraphs or footnotes should be indented uniformly throughout the paper. The number of
spaces for indents depends on the style. A standard indent is eight spaces (1/2 in.); a five space indent is also
frequently used. Single-spaced quotations are indented in their entirety four spaces from the left margin (1/4).

A student should choose a hierarchy of headings and subheadings for a paper and use it consistently. The
spacing above and below headings should be uniform throughout. Examples of headings are provided on the
sample pages. The student, however, may choose another style as long as it remains consistent throughout the paper.

Papers in English literature must follow the MLA style (please refer to Garibaldi & Achtert,
Modern Language
Association Handbook for Writers of Research Papers
), while papers in linguistics and translation must follow the APA style (please refer to Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association).

Title Page
The title page contains the paper title; candidate's name; candidate's degrees, granting institutions, and dates
received; statement shown on the sample page
here ("A non-thesis paper submitted to ..."); name of department
granting the degree; and month and year the paper is submitted.

Signature Page

The signature page (between title page and abstract) is signed by the chair of the paper committee and the two
readers. The papers submitted to the Department of English must contain original signatures. This page is created by the student following the
example included in this package.

The abstract provides a succinct, descriptive account of the paper. It is limited to 350 words. The English and the Arabic abstracts should appear on two separate pages.

Table of Contents
A sample is provided here.

The bibliography/works cited page lists books, articles or other works consulted in preparing the paper. It is included even if end notes or footnotes are used. The arrangement of the bibliography and the information in each entry are determined by the
chosen style (MLA or APA). Usually the entries in the bibliography are single-spaced with a double space between entries.

Footnotes are indicated by superscript numbers in the text. They may be placed at the foot of each page or at the
end of each chapter. Footnotes at the bottom of the page may be numbered either beginning with 1 on each page
or consecutively throughout a chapter. When footnotes are used, the bibliography includes all references cited in the
notes (and additional sources) and is arranged alphabetically. Footnotes may be typed in a smaller size than the text
or in the same size; they are usually single-spaced with a double space between notes.

Numbered bibliography
When a numbered bibliography is used, each entry in the bibliography is numbered consecutively. These numbers are
inserted in the text to cite the references. The numbers in the text are enclosed in parentheses or brackets or printed
as superscripts; they will not appear in consecutive order in the text.


Tables are placed immediately after their first mention in the text, either on a text page or on a separate sheet. They
may be numbered consecutively within each chapter or throughout the paper. Tables that will not fit within the required
margins may be typed in a smaller font or may be reduced; they also may be printed broadside with the top of the
table toward the left margin. Students should refer to a style manual for formatting tables.

Titles and footnotes
Table titles and footnotes may appear above or below the table, but should be consistent throughout the document.
Table footnotes have no relation to text footnotes.

A sample listing of tables can be found here.
Figures are placed immediately after their first mention. They may appear on the text page or on a separate page.
They should fit within the standard paper margins for copying and binding.

Captions and footnotes
Figure captions may appear above or below the figure, but should be consistent throughout the document. Captions
should fit within the standard margins and are not reduced if the figures are reduced; they may appear on the page
preceding and facing the figure. Figures may be printed broadside, with the top toward the left margin; the caption
then appears beneath the figure and is typed from bottom to top of the page within the standard margins. Footnotes
to a figure are typed immediately below the figure, above the caption. On Pages with broadsided (landscaped)
figures, page numbers should appear in the same position on page as all other pages.

Photograph, map and plates
Photographs or acceptable photocopies, black and white or in color, may be used for figures in the paper. Photographs
of slides reproduced on photographic paper may also be used if they are the correct page size, contain a page number,
and are on paper heavy enough to withstand use. Maps and plates may be included in a pocket bound into the final copy
of the paper if they are too large to fit in the required margins.

A sample listing of figures can be found here.
Samples of text formatting can be found here and here.

Acknowledgments, Preface, Introduction, and Glossary
The acknowledgement mentions persons or groups that contributed to the paper or provided funding.

Prefaces are seldom used in papers. A style manual provides guidelines on content.

Chapter 1 of a paper is usually the introduction. However, if a separate introduction precedes Chapter 1, it is still
regarded as part of the paper rather than as preliminary material and its pages are numbered in Arabic numerals rather
than Roman numerals.

A glossary of terms may be included as a separate page in the introductory material (with a Roman numeral) or as an
appendix (with Arabic numbers).
