ABSTRACT
A condensed version of the entire paper. It summarizes the four essential aspects of the paper: purpose of the
experiment, brief summary of the major steps/techniques, major results (yield, purity, etc.), and major conclusions
in relation to the purpose and significance of study. Do not include too much background information. Typically
written in 100-200 words.

End Notes:

The report (Abstract to References) should be no more than four pages. The appendices should still contain page numbers,
in reference to the main report.

Observe proper tense, voice, and other construct rules in technical writing. Ensure coherence throughout the entire paper.
Every sentence, paragraph, or fraction of the paper (e.g. Introduction) is related to the succeeding sentence, paragraph, or
fraction (e.g. Methodology).

Plagiarism includes, but not limited to, the following: (1) complete, that is other’s work submitted under his name; (2)
direct or verbatim, that is copying other’s text word for word as his own; (3) self, that is reusing previously submitted text;
(4) paraphrasing and/or mosaic, that is putting minor but not substantive revision on other’s text (such as word play) and
afterwards taking it as his own; and (5) inaccurate and/or misleading attribution, that is citing a reference which does not
