Writing Quality for the Research Paper • All Grammar, Verb Tenses, Pronouns, Spelling, Punctuation, and Writing Competency should be without error. • Be particularly careful about mis-matching a noun and pronoun. For example, if you say "A person does this..." then do not use "their" or "they" when referring to that person. "Person" is singular; "their" or "they" is plural. • Remember: there is not their, your is not you're, its is not it's, too is not to or two, site is not cite, and who should be used after an individual, not that. For example, "the person WHO made the speech" not "the person THAT made the speech." • in the previous sentence. It is more business-like to say "In a professional paper one should not use contractions," rather than saying, "In a professional paper you don't use contractions." • In a professional paper one does not use contractions (doesn't, don't, etc.) and one does not use the personal I, you or your. Use the impersonal as in the previous sentence. It is more business-like to say "In a professional paper one should not use contractions," rather than saying, "In a professional paper you don't use contractions."
