Abstract This paper describes the format for term papers for EmbryRiddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) classes. The format for the cover page, abstract, body of the report, figures, and tables is presented both by example and explanation. The correct format for citing other authors' work and a reference list is also presented. The guidelines presented are primarily from the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (APA), 5th edition, 2001. The abstract is a concise explanation of what the term paper was about, the results, and the conclusions. It should not exceed 120 words. When considering what to place in the abstract, consider that many people will read the abstract to decide if they want to read the paper in its entirety. The abstract is only one paragraph and the first line is not indented. Use standard one-inch margins.
