The Table of Contents (TOC) is an organized listing of the chapters and major sections of your document. Readers will immediately be able to see how your manuscript is organized and then skip down to sections that are most relevant to them. A clear, concise, and well formatted TOC is the first indicator of a good research paper.
To save yourself some time in making your Table of Contents, be sure that you use font styles.
When using images of others in your own work, you should pay attention to copyright.
Fair Use rules allow you to quote images, works of art, photographs and short video and audio fragments and reuse these in your paper or thesis, as long as the source is properly indicated. Furthermore, the quote should be functional and can not only be used merely to liven up or embellish your work. For example, for using an image on the cover of your thesis, you will need permission from the copyright owner.
The following Writing Guides are available. To view guides, click on the list of catgories on the list below. You may view or hide descriptions of the guides.
These guides are the result of a joint effort of the [email protected] project and the Colorado State University Writing Center. Development of these guides began in 1993, when the original Online Writing Center was developed for campus use at Colorado State University. Several guides were developed in Asymmetrix Multimedia Toolbook and then migrated to the web in 1996. Over the years, additional guides were developed and revised, reflecting the efforts of many writers and writing teachers. We thank them for their generosity. You can learn who developed a particular guide by clicking on the “contributors” link in that guide.
