Project Report Paper(2013 DOE guidelines)All CCI participants are required to submit a project report for their internship activities. This report should be a summary of the projects technical goals; progress made to achieve these goals, and specific accomplishments made by the intern including their impact. The report should include any project relevant technical writing, drawings, schematics, designs, or diagrams, contributed to by the intern. Submission must be made prior to the end of your appointment and as directed by your host laboratory.
General Outline for a Project Report PaperTitle Page Abstract Body References AppendixFormatBegin the abstract on a new line. Use wider side margins for the abstract than for the rest of the manuscript, so that it will be clear where the abstract ends and the main text begins. Type or print the abstract double spaced, preferably as one paragraph of continuous text. Avoid displayed mathematical expressions, figures, and tables. If a reference to the literature is needed, write it out within square brackets in the text of the abstract rather than referring to the list at the end of the paper. For example: The measurement of hydrogen permeation into iron reported by W. R. Wampler [J. Appl. Phys. 65, 4040 (1989)], who used a new method based on ion beam analysis,... Define all nonstandard symbols, abbreviations, and acronyms.

General Outline for a Project Report PaperTitle Page Abstract Body References AppendixPlease provide the additional information requested below. The Appendix is in addition to the report Body above, and this content is not counted towards the six-page report limitation. Participants In a table, list the names, institutions, and roles of each person who participated in the project, including host lab personnel, CCI or SULI students, or other students, as appropriate. Include a brief statement of each participants project team role. AcknowledgementsInclude this statement:This project was supported in part by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Science, Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS) under the Community College Internships Program (CCI).Scientific FacilitiesBriefly state if any scientific user facilities were part of your project activities, including identification of the facility. Notable Outcomes Publications, Reports, Manuals, Drawings/Schematics, Patents, or Presentations. List any articles, patent disclosures, laboratory technical reports, invited/contributed conference/workshop presentations, technical documents, and/or internal presentations resulting from activities performed under this appointment. Please include full bibliographical citations, co-authors, affiliations, titles, and/or venues, as appropriate.
Additional GuidelinesAbstract The Abstract should be on a separate page preceding the reports Body. Body The entire section may not exceed 6 pages. References Publications listed in the References section of your report should be cited in the report body in brackets by number. Example: As illustrated in Figure 3, we used a newly reported optical measurement for the ultrafast dynamic response of shocked photonic crystals . Appendix , including acknowledgementsThe Appendix should follow the reports Body. Figures The Body of your report may not include more than three figures, and extensive technical drawings or materials should appear in the Appendix. Please ensure that your figures are high resolution and that all text included in the figures is legible. It is helpful to include figures that illustrate concepts and approaches as well as scientific and technical results. Each figure must have a caption. When referencing figures in your report, please spell out and capitalize the word Figure and follow it with the number of the figure to which you are referring. Examples: An example of our work is shown in Figure 1. Schematic diagrams of ultrafast electrical current and terahertz-harmonic generation in (a) centrosymmetric media with four-wave mixing, (b) symmetry broken boundaries, and (c) centrosymmetric media in a biased DC electric field. (Figure 2). Equations Equations should not be included in your report unless they are absolutely necessary to communicate an important concept. Equations must be embedded such that no special characters or symbols are lost when converting and uploading files. Acronyms Spell out all acronyms the first time they are used. Do not assume the reader knows your terminology.
