In summary, a paper title page should include the title of the paper, the author's name, the name of the institution or organization, the date of submission, and any other relevant information required by the specific formatting style. It is usually necessary to have a separate title page for a paper to present information in a professional and organized manner. The title should be centered, written in title case, and in the same font and size as the rest of the paper. A running head may be required in certain formatting styles and should be placed in the top right corner of each page, including the title page. It is not recommended to include images or graphics on a paper title page, but it is best to check the specific requirements before doing so.

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?

Thanks,

Jake

The general convention is that the authors state their affiliations at the time the work was performed. If you're not associated with a university, and are, for example, publishing work that has resulted from corporate or industrial research, you would generally state the company that you work for.
 

1. What information should be included on a paper title page?

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).

2. Is it necessary to have a separate title page for a paper?

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.

3. How should the title be formatted on a paper title page?

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.

4. Is a running head required on a paper title page?

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.

5. Can I include images or graphics on a paper 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.
