1.. At least four sources–but you may exceed four sources,
should you wish to. You can have any combination of books,
online material, articles. WIKIPEDIA should not be used as
one of the sources.
2. Introduction should be succinct: no more than four
succinct sentence; it can be less.
3. Conclusion should be succinct: no more than four
sentences; it can be less.
4.For every fact and idea that is not sheer common
knowledge, a book/article and page number should give
immediately following that text. That is, always give
appropriate credit to sources, even when not quoting, but just
paraphrasing, immediately after paraphrase. Of course,
always cite the source (book/article and page) of quotes
immediately after quotation.
