These guidelines are designed to help you to write successful college-level essays. They are called the “General Essay Guidelines, but they refer to the research paper assignment, as well. While we will refer to both essays and research papers in this class, remember that a research paper is simply a specific type of essay—we generally use the term “research paper” to indicate longer, more involved essays that incorporate more outside research than shorter ones. Please remember to carefully read the instructions for each assignment. Make sure that you have the minimum number of required sources and meet the minimum word counts.

While some of the requirements in these guidelines are specific to this class, but most reflect standard approaches to academic writing. (These are also in Guidelines for College Papers.)
