1. Are essay titles underlined or in quotes?

Titles of books should be underlined or put in italics . (Titles of stories, essays and poems are in “quotation marks.”) Refer to the text specifically as a novel, story, essay, memoir, or poem, depending on what it is. In subsequent references to the author, use his or her last name.

2. Do you underline article titles when writing a paper?

Titles are the best way to quickly tell readers what they are supposed to take away from your data. Always title your graphs, says Purrington. Highlight the peak, trough, or other comparison of interest with an arrow containing the value of that data point. It’s better than making a reader work out the value from the axes.

3. How to write titles correctly?

  • When writing a title, capitalize the first word and then just the principal words (i.e., not the articles, conjunctions, or prepositions).
  • If a “principal” word is short, stick to the rules. Give it a capital letter.
  • When writing an established title (e.g., the title of a book or a film), copy the capitalization in the official version. (If you can’t find it, stick to title case.)
