A separate cover page should contain the term paper title, your name, your student number, and abstract/summary (max 250 words) of your term paper. The abstract/summary does not count in the word limit.
Peer-reviewed references include papers available from IEEE Xplore, ACM Digital library, other scientific/technical journals available from VUW library, etc. Cite only papers relevant to your term paper and you have read to a sufficient depth. If you cite a book, it is assumed that you have read the entire book; if you read only one chapter, then just cite that chapter.
Avoid Wikipedia and other un-reviewed/un-verified sources found online.
