Your second paper has to be at least 1,500 words long. It will make up 26.09% of your grade in this course. You will have the opportunity for the revision of your paper. After you turn in your initial draft no later than April 4 I will give you feedback on areas of improvement until April 8. In addition I will offer 2 class sessions (1h 40min), in which I will give writing instructions on how to write a scientific paper (formal structure, action plan, formatting), how to do scientific research (which sources can be used and how do you access them), how to cite sources you have used, and topic related advice. In addition you can email me questions. Normally I answer my emails on a day to day basis.
