Each student must submit a research paper on a topic the student perceives as the most critical issue today in criminal justice. The research paper is required to be a minimum of 10 pages of text. This does not include cover page and reference pages, etc. Submit your research question/topic for approval by the instructor no later than the end of Week 2. A minimum of 5 primary sources are required to include journals, books, and other appropriate source material. Papers should include a title page, introduction, body, summary/conclusions, and reference page. Papers will be typed, double spaced, and include a cover page. Use MLA or APA style for your citations. All source material must be properly cited in the body of the paper using APA or MLA. (I strongly recommend the use of headings in your paper to help organize your thoughts.) Research papers must be original work for this course. Do not submit a paper used in another course. Do not cut and paste paragraphs of information into your paper. All material should be paraphrased. This is a 400 level course and you submission will be graded accordingly.
