The title is not underlined, and neither is anything else in the paper. Bold type occurs, but only for headings and subheadings, not for emphasis within the main text.

Words like »chapter« or »section« do not appear before the chapter or section numbers.

Only the pages on which a section starts are given.

The table of contents presents the headings (all of them) in exactly the wording in which they appear in the body of the paper.

The word »page« need not appear. If it appears, it does so above the column of page numbers only, not before every number in that column.


The most important thing about a term paper is its content: the arguments  and  thoughts  it  presents.  But  the  form  is  not  unimportant  either.  This  document  exemplifies  and  points  out  some  features  of  a  respectable  layout and typography for a term paper.    The operation is limited. For one thing, not all questions of layout 

and  typography  are  covered  here.  Secondly,  there  are  also  important  formal questions – not covered here either – that fall outside those fields  altogether:  questions  of  grammar,  orthography,  language  style,  the  correct  identification  of  quotations  and  sources,  …  Many  formal  points  are treated in The Chicago Manual of Style, The MLA Handbook for Writers of  Research Papers, and other publications of a similar kind. Thirdly, what we  have  here  is  an  example  of  a  way  to  do  things.  The  example  has  some  features to which there are acceptable alternatives.    Except  for  the  bibliography,  the  sample  text  that  follows  is 

gibberish,  which  makes  it  easier  to  concentrate  on  the  typesetting.  All  explanations appear in green type in grey boxes.
