Formatting Checklist for ProQuest

Items below represent the most frequent errors seen by the Office of Student Research administration when ProQuest returns a document to a student for correction.

Note: These errors are related to formatting in the document.  Please ensure that the pilcrow ¶ (found in the paragraph area on the Home tab) is turned on so that all formatting in the document is visible, which will simplify correcting many of the items below to ensure proper formatting in the document and successful submission to ProQuest.

If you need assistance walking through the steps in this checklist or additional formatting support please schedule an appointment with a MS Word peer tutor or e-mail the team at wordsupport@mail.waldenu.edu.
