Discussion:Gender & Sexuality Research Paper

Question Description
You cannot use books, newspapers, magazines or wikipedia as supporting information for your paper. Peer reviewed journal articles have been reviewed for their methods and analysis other sources have not which makes their assertions questionable.

You may choose any area of interest within this or relevant to this course and investigate further using the databases. The more information you find the easier it will be to write your paper. You should use a min. of 5 academic journal articles, but the more you have the more support you will have for your assertions. By reading and reviewing the research articles on your topic you will be able show:

1) a clear understanding of the area of interest

2) the background of the area of interest

3) the main issues

4) the multiple perspectives on the main issues

5) how they’ve been studied

6) your recommendations for future study or policy change.

In academic writing, it is important that you are able to show support for your statements by referencing academic materials. Statements that don’t have support can seem questionable or have no rooting to the framework of your argument.

For this reason I recommend that you first outline your paper using your academic references to construct your theory or argument.

This outline can then be used to write your paper draft and will already include your references since it was based on them.

Your draft can they be reviewed to insure that all statements are supported with references and that you’ve written a strong cohesive paper.

Papers should be 3-5 pages not including cover and works cited (standard font/margins/spacing ~1100-1500words).

Works cited must include at least 5 peer reviewed academic journal articles not including articles originating from this course.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
