The formatting of a research paper will depend on which format and style guide you are required to use for your class. Always verify with your professor which style (APA, MLA, Chicago, etc.) is used in that individual class.
The following are standard conventions to keep in mind when preparing your research paper:
-For APA and MLA double space everything including notes, and lists of Works Cited (MLA) or References (APA).
-For Chicago/Turabian double space between bibliography entries but single space within the contents of each bibliographical entry.
