2500-word minimum research paper in full APA format.
This paper is a review of the professional literature on your topic. As such, most of the paper will be
information you have researched, and this information should be properly cited.
The paper and project must be your own work. Plagiarism will not be tolerated in any format. This paper
should not contain any personal opinion or any personal forms such as “I” or “you” or “we” other than in the Conclusion. There should be no personal experiences or those of friends or co-workers. The only personal communication allowed is from experts, which must be cited properly (see APA Manual). Keep in mind your assignment is to research the topic you have chosen from the approved list and address that topic specifically. You should write about the specific topic, not a portion of the topic or a wider general history. For example, if you write about any of the Katrina topics, you do not need to present pages of information about the storm itself; rather, your goal is to address the topic as it relates to Katrina. Your paper must have a minimum of five outside scholarly and/or professional sources other than your textbook. Scholarly sources are journal articles from actual journals, not journal-looking articles from websites. Scholarly sources are also professional textbooks or scholarly books, not popular books. Professional sources are local, state, and federal government sites. You may use other sources as additional sources. If you use websites, be sure they are professional and credible. Do not use websites that are advocacy groups, businesses, or forums. Newspapers, magazines, and news media are popular sources and do not count towards your outside source requirement; however, they can be used as additional sources. If a site has information that is useful but is not as solid as required, see if you can find the information at a more reputable site. If not, then the information may be questionable. Quoted material should not exceed 25% of your paper. Most of your paper should be cited information. Quotes are direct verbatim and must be cited immediately . All factual statements and others’ work must be cited. That should be most of the paper as you are not using your own opinion.
