Sample Prospectus Please note that in this sample I was vague about some of the primary sources. This is OK for a prospectus, as long as you can reasonably conclude that there is some valuable material to be found in them. In your final draft, you need to be more specific about the sources. For instance, in the APS manuscript collections, I might use: Benjamin Franklin Papers, Hays Calendar Part 8, American Philosophical Society, Philadelphia, PA. In your paper, you should cite the precise document that you used (e.g., Rittenhouse to Franklin, 4 September 1772, Benjamin Franklin Papers, etc.). Adapt this system of citation to whatever your primary sources are. Note also that I exceeded the 200-word limit I recommended in the instructions (by about 65). I did so for demonstration purposes, and because I added far more description than I would have in an actual abstract. The 200-word limit is a recommendation, but you should really try to stay within its bounds, because it ensures that your abstract fits on one page. In the real world, conference planners and journal editors want quick access
