Please see the UHI referencing guide at: https://www.uhi.ac.uk/en/t4-media/one-web/university/library/how-to/UHI-SRG-2014-ENGFINAL.pdf SEE FAQs on next page Frequently Asked Questions: • Do I answer all 4 questions? NO – answer any 2 – you choose. • Do I submit them as 1 single file Yes please: the file will be: 1. Front cover 2. Paper 1 Title 3. Paper 1 4. Reference list 5. Paper 2 Title 6. Paper 2 7. Reference list 8. Marking sheet. • Do I have to write an Introduction? A brief one: For example: This paper considers the main points of the normative ethical theory of utilitarianism. That is a perfectly acceptable opening. Then just get on with it. • Word count is a bit low? It is. Which is why I don’t want a long and winding Introduction paragraph. It should also encourage you to write as concisely and economically as you can. Don’t waste words – check and re-check… are you” bloating” out your assignment with clumsy writing? • Can we go 10% under or over the wordcount? You can go over by 10%. Going under is risky and would suggest you haven’t made the best use of the wordcount and might indicate a rather weak attempt. But see also my point about “bloating” in your writing. Make every word count. • So, can we use bullet points? No – write the essay in continuous prose in paragraphs. You can use headings if you want; remember they count towards the word count. • Can we use appendices? Not if you’re trying to circumvent the word count. In fact, there really shouldn’t be any need to use appendices in an assignment like this • How many references do you want us to have? There is no set number required. For such a brief paper, 3 or more is common, and acceptable. That doesn’t mean you’d be penalized if you only gave 1 or 2.
