Written in either Arial or Times New Roman 12-point font

You will want to pay special attention to the usage of:
Contractions (Do not use contractions!)
“Its” versus “it’s” – remember, it’s = it is (contraction) so do not use in a paper
“Effect” versus “affect”
Centered around/centered on (“centered around” is not correct usage)
“Then” versus “than”
“There” versus “their”
Passive voice (an active construction is the best construction) see below
Remember that attribution is essential – always cite your source, even when paraphrasing. If you get the idea from a book, cite it! As it says in the student handbook, “If in doubt, attribute” (APUS Student Handbook, 115). See the student handbook and the On-line Research Center for more information about this important subject.
