Looking at it, it's kind of hard to take seriously given that it  
includes bad links like:


(apparently that should be http://graduate.asu.edu/recstyleguides.html )

Which begs the question of what your major of study is.

especially when one of the bad links is to:


Rather seems important for that to be up-to-date.

Also when it has contradictions like:

``You cannot rely on other theses and dissertations—whether
library or departmental copies—to format your document.
Someone else’s document is not an acceptable style guide.''

Yet they suggest when using a style guide from a journal to sample an  
article and provide that as an example.

I suspect that just adding \usepackage{mathptmx} will get one most of  
the way there --- certainly it'll change the look sufficiently that  
they won't realize that it was done using LaTeX.
