Overall Academic Writing (10 points)
Your work represents days of writing and editing thoroughly and adheres to the instructions and discussions on material presented
You demonstrate that you have considered, adopted, and/or avoided pitfall as detailed in the Compendium of Corrections, that has examples of common mistakes students make in their research paper and suggests way to improve material
You demonstrate that the paper has been edited thoroughly and has improved with each edit. Editing is not just reviewing you paper once, rather it requires several reviews by you and possibly other students (in this class). Unfortunately, the Writing Center will not be much help in meeting the expectations of academic writing in this course

You MUST prepare your paper and its sections as a scientific article. Here is formatting and style information:
Do not prepare your paper in columns
Use a serif font (Times New Roman) at 11 or 12 point
Do not worry about the number of pages your research paper must be. It depends on your topic and thoroughness of presentation. Obviously, you will have multiple pages.
Single space or Double space your sentences
Indent paragraphs
Proofread your papers- pay attention to commas in prepositional phrases
Provide page numbers- just put them on the bottom of the page, centered
Your paper should have a title (boldfaced) and your name centered
Cite referneces in-text properly (you may loose an entire grade for not doing this correctly)
Provide your references in the References Cited section of your paper properly formatted after the Southwestern Naturalist (you may loose an entire grade for not doing this correctly). Anytime you cite references in-text, provide a References Cited section
Figures and Tables should be on separate pages at the end of your paper
All scientific names must be in intalics. This includes references cited.
Pay attention to the Compendium of Corrections I have provided. These are the most common mistakes and things that students need to know. For example, do not use any contractions in your writing. Doesn’t= Does not
Format your references- do not just attach or cut and paste your annotated bilbliography. List only those references that you cite in-text.
