Research Project: Research Paper Instructions
You are required to write a 8-10-page Research Paper.
This assignment presents you with the opportunity to dig deeply into a particular topic of relevance to your course. You must have a thesis statement followed by a review of the literature that summarizes what others have written about your topic. Conclude your paper with suggestions for future research on the topic. Your paper must not read like an annotated bibliography, nor should it be a series of disjointed paragraphs; rather, the information must be synthesized and flow smoothly.
The 8-10 page requirement does not include the title page, abstract, and reference page. You must utilize at least 10 scholarly sources. Before submitting your Research Paper, you will submit a non-graded rough draft that serves as an accountability check for plagiarism. The order and length of your paper is as follows:
1. Title page – 1 page
1. Abstract – 1 page
1. Body of the paper – 8-10 pages
1. References page (10 scholarly sources)
