General Chicago Manual of Style Guidelines for
Formatting your Research Paper
• Double-space between each line of type on the page. Double-space between all lines of the manuscript.
• Only use single-spacing or one-and-a-half spacing for block quotes.
• Leave uniform margins of at least 1 inch (2.54 cm.) at the top, bottom, left and right of every page.
• Do not justify lines. Use the flush left style and the right margin uneven.
