Kaplan NOTE: READ ALL PAGES OF THIS GUIDELINE VERY CAREFULLY ANALYTICAL RESEARCH PAPER The research paper is designed to give you the opportunity to apply background information (course themes), analytical skills, and theories learned in class to particular topics. Your research (library and fieldwork) will provide the information that you will use to compare and contrast knowledge, concepts and theories discussed in class. TOPIC: Choose any topic related to course themes. The paper will be 8-10 pages, typed, double-spaced, with at least 6 primary references (2 from class reading). You should include secondary references as well ( as many as you want). Do not use binders, two staples in the upper left-hand corner will suffice. Your name (s), title of the paper and the beginning of the body of the paper should appear on the first page (i.e., no title pages, save paper, save trees). The bibliography should appear on a separate page at the end of the paper. Any photos, graphs, illustrations, field notes, interview notes, and endnotes (if relevant) should appear on separate Appendixes after the bibliography. GUIDELINES FOR THE RESEARCH PAPER: 1. A good research paper has a strong, interesting introduction which lays out the main points to be discussed in the body of the paper. The introduction must have a clear and concise thesis statement which you will support and develop in the body of the paper. 2. The body of the text will develop in details the points that support your thesis and develop your topic. Draw parallel and make comparisons with contemporary theories and events. Make sure you give enough concrete evidence (examples) to support your statements. Be specific in the examples you give. Make sure you cite all of the sources. 3
