Project #23754 - IFSM

Research Paper

(These instructions are also attached here as a Word document)

This assignment has two goals:  1) have students increase their understanding of the concept of Protecting Personal Information (PPI) and other ethical issues related to the use of information technology through research, and 2) learn to correctly use the tools and techniques within Word to format a research paper including using Word’s citation tools.  These skills will be valuable throughout students’ academic career.  The paper will require a title page, 2-3 pages of content with incorporation of a minimum of 3 external resources from credible sources, and a References page. 

 

You are required to use APA format and utilize the References feature in Word for the required footnotes and for the creation of citations and the References list.  Note that although MS Word used Bibliography or Works Cited as the title for the References list, you will need to change the words to “References.”

 

Good resources include the UMUC Library website, the chapters on Microsoft Word in your hands-on textbook, the Williams/Sawyer textbook, and the resources that can be found under Course Content in your WebTycho classroom: Writing Resources, the Online Guide to Writing and Research, and the APA Tutorial.

 

A list of topics from which students can choose is provided below.
