Govt 480 research paper outline due 9/28/2020




Research Paper Instructions

The Research Paper must be approximately 6–8 pages of text, not including the title page and bibliography page, and be in current APA format. You will choose the topic you write on, but your topic must be directly related to the study of terrorism.

Your paper must be written in 12-point, Times New Roman font with 1” margins. It must include a title page with the paper title, student name, course name, and instructor name. Include page numbers in accordance with current APA guidelines. You must use a minimum of 5 sources from both online and printed source material. Save the paper as 

“lastnamefirstinitial.doc” (E.g. doej.doc). You must use Microsoft Word. (Neither MS Works nor WordPerfect are acceptable.)


Your paper must make a point. Do not merely report facts. Take what is, analyze it, interpret it in light of a personal Christian worldview, discuss options, and discuss things you think should change. Support your ideas, give alternatives to current practice and support them, and integrate material from textbook readings or lectures. If you are of a different major taking this as an elective, integrate your field into this project.

Proper spelling, grammar, and sentence structure are expected. Short, choppy sentences are NOT acceptable. This is a college course, and deductions will be made accordingly. You must not use personal pronouns (I, me, we, us, our, etc.), and the standards of academic writing must be applied. Have someone else proofread your paper before turning it in to ensure what you are saying makes sense. 

The Research Paper will be completed in 3 parts—the Bibliography, the Outline, and the Final Submission. 

Submit the Research Paper – Bibliography by 10:59 p.m. (CST) on Monday of Module/Week 3.

Submit the Research Paper – Outline by 10:59 p.m. (CST) on Monday of Module/Week 5.

Feedback to Learner

This is *not* an Annotated Bibliography. Read the Assignment Instructions. You need (5) non-biblical references. Excellent quality of sources. Substantively, you need to go back and read the assignment instructions. Non-substantively, re-look at your APA-7 formating parameters for Title Page and citations. Keep pressing!
