6 Line-Spacing

This is a a very popular question. Rule of thumb is to double-space everything.


Double space throughout.This includes all text in your manuscript, titles, headings, footnotes, references, quotations (under and over 40 words), and figure captions.


Never use single-spacing, or one-and-a-half spacing except in tables, or figures.

Triple and Quadruple-Spacing

Triple and quadruple spacing is acceptable in special circumstances.
