(the bibliography does not apply towards the overall page count) This should be written in a narrative form and not as bullet points. It should also follow proper research paper formatting and writing standards. Be sure that you are using legitimate sources. You WILL lose points for using sources like Wikipedia. If your source does not have an author, it’s probably not appropriate for a college-level research paper.
