Requirements for Report Submission
Final reports submitted to the Faculty Research Fellows Program must follow standard content and formatting practices to insure that the report can be reviewed, approved, and disseminated as quickly as possible.
The report needs to be submitted by email as a Microsoft Word document.
All pages should contain 1.25" margin on the left and 1" margins elsewhere.
With the exceptions noted here, the report should be double-spaced and
use the Times New Roman Font at 12 pitch. All text should be left-justified
to the margin and each new paragraph should be indented five spaces.
Sections of the report should follow the heading conventions of:
(centered; all capitals for first headings)
(centered; first-letter capitals for second headings)
Sub-Sub Heading One
(left-justified; underlined, first-letter capitals
for third headings)
Page numbers should appear at the bottom center of all pages.
All tables, figures, and graphics should be embedded in the electronic document. Follow
any standard form for table and figure creation but be sure to be consistent
in the use of the form throughout your report. Be sure to provide a title
for each table, figure, or graphic. For instance:
Descriptive Statistics Relating to Age at Start of Kindergarten and
Later Academic Performance
A table of contents indicating all headings, second headings, and third
headings should appear immediately after a cover page that lists the title,
date, and names and associations of all authors.
A table that lists all figures and tables, and the page they are to be
inserted into in the body of the report, should appear on a separate page
that follows the table of contents.
A one-page (single-spaced) executive summary should follow the table
of contents. After this, a one-page (single-spaced) discussion of appropriate
policy recommendations should follow. Following this, the body of the
report should begin.
A reference list should be the final item in each report. Follow any
of the standard practices in composing it.
Thank you in advance for maintaining these standard practices.
