Exterior Wall Insulation


I have a walkout basement wall that is needs insulation. I need to insulate this wall properly. Te insulation I purchased is Owen Corning (R-15) insulation with paper backing. What is the proper position of the insulation, paper out or paper in?

Paper always goes toward the conditioned side of the wall.
(The side that heated and cooled)

Yep, toward the heated side, inside in a heating climate, outside in a cooling climate; map; http://www.energysavers.gov/your_hom.../mytopic=11810
