for your term-paper project. When referring
to books or journal, refer the page number in the citation in the text - e.g., (Smith,
1983, p. 25). That makes it much easier for one to see on your
citation. For information
that is not truly common knowledge, there should be citations given so
that the interested reader knows where to find more information. Figure
captions, that needs to be written completely. If modification in
terms of redrawing on figure is needed, then it should be noted that the
figure is modified after Smith, 1983.
