All quotations must be cited; I do not require a specific format, though title of source and page number should be included. Microsoft Word is recommended; if you use a different word processor I may not be able to open your file, and I cannot grade what I cannot open. I use originality software on all essays, so make sure your essay is your own writing. If the originality report is higher than 20% not original you should revise/edit your essay and resubmit it before the due date.
