It’s your job to tell the people who have to write the papers what is expected of their papers. It’s not obvious. It’s not natural. Writing itself isn’t natural, and we’re not supposed to write the way we speak, so clearly there are conventions (read: stuff people made up that other people have to learn and aren’t born knowing) that need to be followed. And those conventions vary from one type of paper to the next. So explain. And if you don’t explain well enough and you get a paper that doesn’t follow your secret paper rules, recognize that it’s your fault for expecting people to read your mind.
end rant, recommence trying to write papers without understanding what the rules are and hating life
