"You pack a lot of well-researched information into your essay, and it is good that you don’t shy away from including citations to outside sources. However, review needs to be done to ensure that a period is placed after a parenthetical citation located at the end of a given statement. Standard practice for abbreviations in academic writing is to only introduce and use an abbreviation if it’s going to appear at least three times in your work. Before using an abbreviation, the term it stands for should be written out in full with the abbreviation included immediately after in parentheses. The title of a magazine should be italicized, and the word “the” should not be capitalized when it appears in the middle of a sentence. References to decades such as the 1980s don’t need an apostrophe between the number 0 and the letter “s” because no content is being omitted. A reference to the ’90s does need an apostrophe before the number 9 because the numbers 1 and 9 have been omitted. Note that you have a tendency to write run-on sentences when using the words “therefore” and “thus.”"
