MUST BE ORIGINAL WORK************

Review the Final Research Paper instructions located within the Final
Research Paper link in your online course or under the “Components of
Course Evaluation” section of this guide. The Final Research Paper is
due in Week Five. To help with the preparation of the paper, complete
the following and submit it to your instructor for feedback.

  1. Topic: Refer to the Final Research Paper
    guidelines for your topic selection. Confirm your topic, and identify
    how this selection relates to your academic and professional pursuits.
    Review the feedback from your topic choice presented in the Week One
    discussion. How did your argument stand up to the examination of your
    peers?
  2. Thesis: Write a direct and concise thesis
    statement, which will become the point or perspective you will argue or
    prove in the Final Research Paper. Refer to the Ashford Online Writing
    Center for information on how to develop a solid thesis statement.
  3. Annotated Bibliography: To help prepare for
    your final paper, you will be writing an annotated bibliography to
    indicate the quality of the sources you have read.  Please make sure to
    cite each source using APA style.  After each citation, write a brief
    paragraph (around 150 words) summarizing the source and examining how it
    will support you in defending your argument.  For more information and
    example of an annotated bibliography, please refer to section 7.7 in the
    Ashford Writing Center within the Learning Resources tab on the left
    navigation toolbar in your online course..  Keep in mind the Academic
    Research standards for all Ashford University Papers.

Academic Research Standards
Academic research and papers must meet certain standards of
quality recognized by the academic community. What constitutes quality,
academic research?

  1. Primary sources, which are documents from the time period being discussed
  2. Secondary sources supported by research in primary sources
  3. Credible sources (experts in the area of study)
  4. Relevant research (materials are pertinent to the area of study)
  5. In graduate work, the use of peer-reviewed journal articles
    (journal articles reviewed by recognized experts in the relevant field
    of study) is required.
  6. Educationalarrow and Government websites may be appropriate in some cases, but should be evaluated carefully.

The paper must be five to seven pages in length (excluding the title
pages) and formatted according to APA style. You must use at least five
scholarly sources, three of which can be found in the Ashford Online
Library, to support your points. Of the five sources, two will be your
primary sources, and one will meet the multimedia requirement. For
information regarding APA, including samples and tutorials, visit the
Ashford Writing Center within the Learning Resources tab on the left
navigation toolbar in your online course.

    of this piece in relationship to academic knowledge and the selected
    issue.
