Hi, i am writing a literature review for my pharmacy college's writing class but I have doubts about how the paper is supposed to be set up. Is anyone familiar with this type of paper?
so is the format as follows?
title page : title centered in the middle of the page with my name, date, class, professor's name
abstract: summary of the paper. do i introduce the guide questions here or the intro?
introduction: does the thesis go here or in the abstract?
body: with paragraphs under subheadings (which are the guide questions)
Here is the bare bones of what I have so far. I left out most of the body. Please critique what I have. :)
