 Body & Spacing

The body of the paper should be single-spaced and should immediately follow the Abstract. Use 12-point type for the body of the paper. Indent every paragraph. Double space before first or second level sub-headings (in other words, leave one blank line). Sub-headings that take more than one line should be single-spaced. Provide single space between each listing in the reference section. Do not double space between paragraphs.

Citations in the text should list the author's last name, comma, and publication date, all enclosed by parentheses, i.e., (Jain S, & Soni S.). If the author's name is used in the sentence, there is no need to repeat the name in the citation; just use the year of publication in parentheses. Note that an ampersand (&) is used with multiple authors only when they appear in parentheses.

The references section, including all citations used must be included in the paper. The word "References" should appear as a first-level heading. Entries must appear in alphabetical order, with an indent of 0.25". If several works are cited for any given author, write the name of the author each time the name appears.
