Define all key terms.
2. Lectures are designed as a guide to your own research. Essays which merely regurgitate lecture notes will not be

4. The “in text” reference system is to be used.
7. Please use complete justification of the text (as distinct from left justification).

this book you need not repeat the bracketed reference; when you turn to a different book by this author, or a book by
another author, provide the bracketed date.

idea start a new paragraph.

or make reference to Wikipedia as it is not a valid academic resource, though it may refer you to valid academic
sources which may be referenced.
