Examples | Appendix as a Single Chapter:
Examples | Appendix as Multiple Chapters:
The Appendix is intended for supplementary, informational, and/or illustrative material
that is too lengthy for inclusion in the text. The material within the appendix does not
have to meet the double spacing and font requirements, but must be formatted within the 1" margins.
Each appendix subsection or appendix chapter (depending on how you choose to structure) must be
listed using numbers or letters in a consistent style, such as:
- Appendix I, Appendix II, Appendix III
- Appendix 1, Appendix 2, Appendix 3
- Appendix Appendix B, Appendix C
Please note, each appendix chapter or subsection must have a title, and must be listed in the Table of Contents.
