Each entry shall be the original work of a single individual and constitute an independent
subject. The ideas and work reflected by each entry must be the author’s own. The author
must perform all of the key tasks of researching the topic, analyzing it, formulating positions
and arguments, and writing and revising the paper for himself or herself. The author may
inform another of the progress he or she has made in performing these tasks and accept a reasonable amount of responsive advice from academicians or practitioners in the field but
the student must avoid undue collaboration. For example, the author may obtain a teacher’s opinion that a detailed outline should be reorganized, or that a first draft unwisely omits to
cover a subtopic or to raise and respond to criticisms of the author’s premise. The author must limit the amount of such advice sought or received so that the final entry truly reflects the
author’s own ideas and work and not that of another.
