Before you turn in your paper, check (1) spelling, (2) punctuation, (3) capitalization, and (4) footnotes.

In British English, is it necessary to insert a comma after "capitalization"?

Thanks.

@tanguatlay,
What you’re talking about is the Oxford comma, if you google the phrase you’ll see there’s a lot of debate about whether or not to use it. So it’s best to sayit’s optional.

Of more concern is the comma after paper, get rid of it.

@izzythepush,
I'd also get rid of the numbers.

Neither 'capitalization' nor the insertion of numerals in the sentence is British English.
