Paper structure should follow this general outline (although alternative structures may be used with instructor approval). Introduction: Establish the topic and its relevance, provide a clear direction for the paper Literature Review: Cover important background information and specific details on the topic, be sure to integrate between sections and provide smooth transitions. The literature review is often built from multiple subtopics that are each roughly 1-3 paragraphs in length. Discussion: Evaluate and explain the previously reviewed literature, draw novel connections, highlight limitations or future directions, synthesis is key. The paper should be based on peer-reviewed academic research found in professional journals or edited books. A minimum of ten (10) peer-reviewed articles are required, additional articles and/ or other sources (., book chapters, think tank websites, etc.) beyond the ten peer-reviewed articles are welcome. Internet citations should be used sparingly, only in situations in which a point cannot be illustrated using professional references. L‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍ikewise, think tanks publication, non-profit organizations, magazines, newspapers, or textbooks should have limited use in a research-based paper and do not count toward the minimum ten peer-reviewed citations. Writing: Aim to write papers in a clear manner, with a cohesive and integrated presentation of the research literature as well as your own ideas. Proofread your paper and aim for accurate spelling, grammar and citations throughout. The research paper should be written in 3rd person (formal) and have APA formating. Papers should be double-spaced with 12-point font (Times New Roman is preferable) with page numbers in the top right corner. The Cover page should consist of the title of your paper, your name, the course title, and the date. NOTE: The cover page does not count toward the page limit. The References page should follow APA format (it’s called Bibliography or Works Cited in other formats) . NOTE: The References page does not count toward the page limit. For help understanding APA citation style see: General Paper Tips: REFERENCES – for all theorists or specifics given, for all studies cited, for general concepts adapted from someone else’s work and so forth Switching tense is confusing.. Aim to be consistent. Use words efficiently. Organization is essential. Aim to guide the reader through your paper in a clear and logical progression. When using ‘these’, ‘this’, or ‘that’, be sure to specify what (. this article, that data, these children) Do not rely on quotes rephrase in your own words. Transitions are important between and within paragraphs. Sample transition words/ phrases: For example, In addition, Similarly, Likewise, In comparison, In contrast, Meanwhile, Whereas, Therefore, Thus, Thereby, Altogether, Overall, In sum, In conclusion, La‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍stly,
