Jill, yes, external validity is something that needs to be considered in the development of every research study. For example, a threat to external validity could occur when a study is conducted with participants from one setting and results may not generalize to other participants or settings.

For example, interventions that may work among men may not work among women, changes in clinical practice may work in private doctors’ offices but not in clinics, and smoking cessation practices may work in smokers who are ready to quit smoking but not in smokers who are not ready. Interventions to increase healthy eating may use strategies such as “apps” or emailing healthy recipes; this strategy is unlikely to work for people who live in neighborhoods without access to healthy foods in grocery stores (food desert) These examples could all pose a threat to external validity if it is not clearly understood which population (sample) is being studied. The solution would be to clearly identify the population (and sample) studied and restrict conclusions based on results to that specific population.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
