For references you provide for this assignment

This preview shows page 18 - 20 out of 93 pages.

For references you provide for this assignment, citation of the class lecture notes as a reference is not allowed. You must ensure that you provide a reference for all statements you make in your paper that are not your own original thought. Also, you must use the most up-to-date information available as your sources. Biomedical information that is greater than 10-15 years old is likely out-of-date (Would you want your doctor or teacher to use only information that he/she learned 20 years ago and has not updated since? Staying current in your profession is crucial!). Cite only sources that you obtain and read completely. Do not use a reference that you only obtain the abstract for. You are not required to submit copies of your references with this paper. During evaluation of your paper, however, Dr. Chalmers may request that you provide your complete references within 24 hours, so keep them handy after writing the paper. See the grading sheet for the term paper, in Dr. Chalmers lecture notes for additional description of criteria used in grading the paper. A grading sheet must be removed from the last page of the lecture notes package and included as the last page of your paper. PLEASE, remember to staple your paper. The report is to be 1.5 pages of typed single spaced text with a minimum font size of 12 point , this does not include the reference list page. You do not need a title page (put names and title in header on the first page. You must have one extra open line space before each major section heading, and the title must be at the top center of the first page of the text (see the samples on the course web site). The margins are to be 0.75 to 1 inch on all sides. The required length is to be rigidly adhered to. This may seem very restrictive and unreasonable, but when asked to produce an information brochure in a job, you will be given strict requirements that must be adhered to (e.g., fits on one 3 fold piece of paper, margins of ½ inch from edges and folds, font size 12 New York, but do not actually produce you report as a three fold brochure ), your job is then to meet those requirements to produce the needed product. The report must be well laid out and easy to read (see the samples on the course web site). Accordingly, when getting your report to fit the required length, you must focus primarily on the content and the writing, not on page layout tricks to shrink or expand the length. The font must be clearly printed, without defects that low cost printers may produce. Some sample reports from previous terms are available on the course web site for you to view. You may include a bullet list of some details you want to summarize. A bullet list must have an introduction sentence to it, explaining what is being listed. An introductory word like “Symptoms” does not suffice as an introduction to a list. A list must also be laid out well to not waste page space. Below are examples of good and bad tables.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
