Research Project Guide
The paper is to be double spaced, left justified, one inch margins, written in Times New Roman 12.
The paper is to be 10-12 pages long.
References to sources are to be made using the same format throughout the paper. Most students are accustomed to MLA. The key to success in this aspect of the project is consistency.
There is to be a “Works Cited” section at the end of the paper (not included in the 10-12 page length) that indicates primary and secondary sources actually referenced in the body of the paper.
Both primary (the Bible, ancient writings, apocryphal gospels, etc.) and secondary sources (books, articles about the primary sources) are to be used.
There is a minimum of six sources required. The required texts may not be used as a source but recommended texts may be used.
Both books and articles should be utilized as secondary sources for this project.
Secondary sources should be of an academic nature.
