academic paper guidelines
"Justified left margin(not both)"
what does that mean?
Left justify your document instead of using full justification.
Actually, as an academic, I was rather partial to full justification as I thought (and think) that it makes for an elegant and neat looking page of print. Left justification can be uneven in appearance.
It seems pretty much everything I write ends up typeset with full justification. *shrug*
Ah, yes. Mine, too, as it happens.
To my mind, it simply looks far better, is a lot more elegant and reads much more easily than any of the alternatives.
I like full justification as well, although admit that when I do it I often will save formatting a document as such as the last step. I've found that-at least in MS Word-editing a fully justified document can leave one with some very odd spacing on individual lines in my experience as Word seems reluctant to wrap words from the preceding or following line to even out the spacing.
I think it looks better too, although sometimes the ragged right edge helps me keep better track of my in-text location while reading. I must recognize the pattern with peripheral vision or something. It is a small effect though.
- Just because somethings trite, doesn´t make it any less true
What does that mean?
Is that your assignment/essay title?
@scept. it´s a quote from The Social Network, great script by Aron Sorkin. Do you know what it means? That´s why I asked
"trite" - clichéd, overused, banal, obvious and boring.
So, I would say that means that a word or phrase may be considered trite, or overused, or obvious, but that does not make it meaningless.
Good luck on your paper.
Is this your first attempt at actual writing?
@Delta thanks man. The paper has been handed in weeks ago I´m young, just curious about this style of writing, preparing of whats to come I guess..
