  5. 5. Font style/Fontsize  To ensure clear and legible text for all copies, 12 points in size. Superscripts and subscripts (e.g., formulas, footnote numbers) should be no more than 2 points smaller than the font size used for the body of the text.  use standard fonts such as Times New Roman or Arial. Pagination  Use lower case Roman numerals (i, ii, iii, iv, etc.) on all pages preceding the first page of chapter one. The title page counts as page i, but the number does not appear. Therefore, the first page showing a number will be page ii (the copyright page or first page of the abstract if not including a copyright page).  Arabic numerals (beginning with 1, 2, 3, 4, etc.) start at chapter one or the introduction, if applicable, and include the text, illustrations, notes, and any other materials that follow. The first page of each chapter should be counted when you paginate the thesis, but should not be identified with any numeral. Thus, the second page of chapter one is the first to show an Arabic numeral: 2. Do not use page numbers accompanied by letters, hyphens, periods, or parentheses (e.g. 1., 1-2, -1-, (1), and 1a).  Center all page numbers at the bottom of the page 1/2″ from the bottom edge. Appendices  It should appear at the end of the document, not the chapter to which they pertain. When there is more than one appendix, assign each appendix a number or a letter heading (e.g., Appendix 1D, Appendix One, or Appendix A) and a descriptive title.  The heading(s) should be centered and appear 1″ below the top of the page. All headings and titles must appear in the table of contents. All appendix pages should be numbered with Arabic numerals, continued from and subject to the same guidelines as the rest of the document. Bibliography/References  Required to list all the references.  Select an appropriate heading (such as Bibliography, Works Cited, References, or Sources Consulted). It should be centered and appear 1″ below the top of the page. All bibliography pages should be numbered with Arabic numbers, continued from and subject to the same guidelines as the rest of the document.  Citations are single-spaced within each entry and double-spaced between entries.
