Abstract/Copyright Pages

The title of the document matches exactly on the abstract, title page, and signature page--word for word and line for line--using all uppercase letters and an "inverted pyramid" shape (the longest line comes first followed by progressively shorter lines).

The Copyright page is not required. You can include a Copyright page in your document whether you have registered your manuscript with the Copyright Office or not. The page is a reminder to readers that you, as the creator of the document, have copyright privileges to the information within the document. The Copyright page does not have a page number and is not counted as a page in the document, so the numbering of pages that follow the copyright page is not affected by the presence of a Copyright page in the document.

NOTE: The templates were created using the 2013 version of Microsoft Word. If a template is downloaded in another version of Word or another word processing program, the formatting may be incorrect. Also, if a template is copied and pasted into another document, the settings of that document (margins, page number settings, font style, etc.) may affect the look of the template.
