Right margins should be justified (aligned) only if it can be done without leaving large gaps between words. All hyphenation must be carefully checked and adjusted. Manuscripts submitted for publication use a ragged right margin

Spacing

The text should be double-spaced except for block quotations, notes and references, captions, and long headings, which should be single spaced with a blank space between items

Page numbers

Page numbers for each page beginning a major section of a paper (the first text page, bibliography, notes, appendix) are placed at the bottom center of the page three-quarters of an inch from the page edge. Page numbers on other pages go in the upper right corner double spaced above the text.

Italics

Footnotes

Footnotes must be placed, or at least must begin, on the page where they are referred to the text and footnotes are separated by a short rule, or separator. If a footnote runs over to the following page, a separator should be inserted on that page. Each footnote must begin on a new line, indented the same amount as paragraphs in the text. Footnotes are usually single-spaced, with a blank line between notes.
