Research Papers are REQUIRED to be an ORIGINAL Work, NOT a duplication from another class or an edited/self-plagiarized duplicate research paper that has been previously submitted during your academic career.

The paper will be worth 100 points and will be graded on the following criteria:

Provides a thorough discussion and analysis of all of the elements of the subject.
Contains a clear organizational pattern, to include an introduction, a body, and a conclusion.

The conclusion will include a comprehensive summary of the paper.
The paper must:

(1) Have a minimum of 10 pages; the 10-page total DOES NOT include the title page, abstract, and reference pages.

(2) Have no more than 10 errors in grammar, word usage or other mechanics such as spelling, sentence structure, etc.

The term paper will be graded on the same standard as that used on essay questions.
