Project #52854 - Environmental Issues in Business

Students will prepare a formal academic paper in essay format of 2500 words which addresses one of the ten (10) research topics provided. The Major assignment has to include both a descriptive and an analytical component. In other words, you need to be able to present in an organised and structured way credible information on the topic you select as well as provide a critical analysis (not just a summary of the relevant literature). ‘Credible information’ means that your information derives from scholarly, i.e., peer reviewed, references. ‘Critical analysis’ in this instance means identifying, defining and discussing discipline concepts and problems raised in your lectures and readings and applying them critically to the credible information you have collected. Your major assignment needs to be fully referenced and written to academic standards. The assessment criteria (rubric) for the major assignment can be viewed through My Grades. A special requirement of this unit is that when paraphrasing from any source, you will also be required to provide the page number/s on which you have drawn for the paraphrasing. Your essay needs to demonstrate evidence of having read and absorbed AT LEAST eight (8) scholarly academic journal articles (you can include other authenticated reference sources e.g., Australian Bureau of Statistics, as needed, but these do not count towards the minimum required number of scholarly articles). Nor will online reports by academics (Working papers, Discussion papers, commissioned reports of all kinds) or by organisations or institutions, including NGOs and Government departments, be counted as scholarly. These are known as ‘grey literature’ and although they may look impressive and be authoritative, they are not generally peer reviewed or refereed, and therefore do not match in credibility the research articles published in peerreviewed journals. You must also not rely on web-based material taken from sites such as Wikipedia, Tutor.net, etc. Students submitting work with fewer than eight (8) academic peer-reviewed journalarticles will receive a 5% deduction (5% of 40 marks) for each missing source. Assignments which do not meet the word length of 2500 words (±10%) will lose marks at 5% per 100 words above or below the limit (for example, an essay of 2150 words will have lost 5% off the mark allotted).
