If you went to a university, but did not graduate and are no longer in any classes, and you do not work for them, do you still put "University of [x]" on the title page of a scientific paper?
A paper title page should include the title of the paper, the author's name, the name of the institution or organization the author is affiliated with, the date of submission, and any other relevant information required by the specific formatting style (such as course name or instructor's name).
In most cases, yes. A separate title page helps to organize and present important information about the paper in a professional and organized manner. However, it is always best to check the specific guidelines or requirements of the assignment or journal to ensure a separate title page is necessary.
The title should be centered, written in title case (capitalize the first letter of each major word), and not bold or italicized. It should also be in the same font and font size as the rest of the paper.
A running head is typically only required in certain formatting styles, such as APA style. If required, it should be a shortened version of the title (no more than 50 characters) written in all capital letters and placed in the top right corner of each page, including the title page.
In most cases, it is not necessary or recommended to include images or graphics on a paper title page. However, some journals or assignments may have specific guidelines for including images or logos on the title page. It is best to check the requirements before including any images.
