    Fact Sheet / Policy Brief Assignments
    ...
    your presentation. In doing your research, don't forget to use the resources listed on the wiki site. Westlaw, of course, is good (and don't forget that you can get newspapers, magazines,etc. through it). Google Scholar is often helpful as well. If your research involves personal contacts, start those immediately, as it is often hard to track people down. Phone calls are usually more effective than emails in getting response.
    Outline should be roughly two pages and should include a list of all the sources you plan to use (generally, at least 10 to 20, depending on the subject). It should be in classic outline format and set out the structure of your fact sheet in a logical sequence.
    Rough draft should be full length or close to it. You should be done with research by the time you complete the rough draft.
    A few notes on format of final product:

    Include page numbers
    In final version, include a graphic element on each page. This can be non-copyrighted art, charts, graphs, text boxes with key quotes, etc. Use the compress function on all images to keep your file size from getting too large.
    ...
    Use plain English, short sentences, and active verbs throughout. Review carefully to eliminate unnecessary verbiage.
    Be sure that all factual data is sourced. Indicate sources with end notes (not footnotes). Use Arabic numerals for footnotes (1,2,3 . . . ) and 10 point Times New Roman font, single spaced. Use Blue Book, Chicago Style Manual, or another widely accepted format for end notes.
