AC 102 Ethics in Addiction Counseling - Jazwinski: Format Your Term Project

This guide will help students in Prof. Jazwinski's AC 102 class find scholarly resources about ethical issues in counseling.

Term Project submissions

Be sure to include all of the information required: Big Question, citation, abstract and your summary. 

How To Copy and Paste the Citation and Abstract into Word

For the THREE Term Project articles you will need to send the article citation and abstract to Prof. J for approval. The easiest way to do that is by copying the information into a Word doc and uploading that into BB. Go into your email,  find the article record (you remembered to email yourself the article, yes?) and click on the link to go back to the article in the database - if you are off-campus you will need to log in with your MyWCC userID and password.

Open a Word Document (under Start menu > All Programs > ?College Applications (depending on your computer)

From the article record in the database, click on the CITE button and scroll to MLA. Copy (highlight then hit ctrl + c):

Paste (ctrl + V) into your Word doc:

THE DATABASE NAME IS INCORRECT. Go back to the citation page to find the correct database name.

Change EBSCOhost to the correct database name based on what the other citations have. The database name should be in ITALICS.


Did your citation look like this?

Highlight the citation and click NO SPACING in the toolbar to clear the green background. Make sure the Journal Title and Database Name are still italicized and follow the rest of the instructions to continue formatting in MLA style.

This is not formatted correctly, so highlight the entire citation and click on the arrow at the bottom of the Paragraph section of the WordToolbar. Choose Hanging under SPECIAL and Double under LINE SPACING and click OK.

(Note: GoogleDocs does not have a hanging indent function, but a workaround can be found at the following link: though I have not tried it.).

Ta daa! You now have a pretty MLA formatted citation.

Go back to the article citation and scroll down to the abstract. Highlight and copy like before.

and paste that into your Word doc under the citation for your article.


Repeat for articles two and three on the same document. Dont forget to add your group topic. Then upload under the ASSIGNMENTS tab in your course shell.


Once your articles are approved your group will prepare an article summary for ONE of the articles, again including the MLA formatted citation and abstract.

Later in the semester, combining information from the term project articles and additional scholarly sources, will present on your topic to your classmates.
