Use 12 point type font. 2. Double-space text 3. Use 1-inch margins all around. 4. Number all pages. 5. Write only in the third person (don’t say “I” or “we,” or address the reader as “you.”) 6. Use frequent subheadings to help organize the issues you are addressing. As a rule of thumb, have at least one section break per page. 7. Refer to a firm as “it,” not as “they” or “them.” 8. Avoid using contractions (e.g., “don’t, it’s, they’ll”); this is too informal for professional work. 9. Introduce abbreviations before using them: e.g., “net present value (NPV).” Thereafter, use “NPV.” 10. Use word- and sentence structure variety. Very few sentences should begin with “The.” 11. Graphs and tables should be integrated into the text. Identify each graph or table with a letter or number (e.g., “Table 1”) along with a unique, descriptive title, and refer to each by its name and integrate it properly in the text (Correct: “Table 1 shows that, between 1980 and 2010, the average payout ratio for dividend-paying firms has decreased from 54% to 36%.” Incorrect: “See Table 1.”) Include only those tables and charts directly relevant to your discussion. 12. Spell check your paper! 13. Proofread. Before turning in your paper, read it aloud from beginning to end. If what you have written sounds strange to your ears, you have probably constructed a poor sentence. 14. How does your finished paper look? Feel? Flip through the document and think about the impression it leaves.
