1, Two, or III? How to Format Numbers in Academic Writing
Dates, Years and Centuries. Years (e.g. 2012, 45-12 BCE) are almost always written using numerals, though dates can be presented either numerically (e.g. 03/02/16) or written out in full (3 rd February, 2016). For the most part, it’s better to write out months as a word if a date appears in the main text of your essay.
