Research papers will have a body of seven to ten (7-10) pages. The paper must also have an outline, and Works Cited page. (These pages are NOT considered as part of the body page count.) You will find a sample research paper, including a sample Bibliography at the Purdue OWL website. Their website also offers information about outlining; be sure to click through the three subsections regarding outlining. The order of pages in the paper is the outline, body of the paper, and lastly the bibliography. These are all to be saved and sent to me in one document. The bibliography will contain seven or more sources. The sources will be derived from appropriate books, periodicals, etc., to denote a variety of sources used; Each of the sources used in the Works Cited must be used at least once in the research paper. Only two sources may be internet sources SOURCES THAT MAY NOT BE USED: Cliffs Notes, Pink Monkey, Magill’s Surveys, Barron Notes, Schmoop, Sparknotes, Masterplots, Monarch Notes, eNotes, Gradesaver, Encyclopedias, Dictionaries, Prezis, essays from paper mills, Wikipedia, and all other similar sources. You are to follow the MLA 8th edition format and documentation as described at the Purdue OWL site. Use direct quotations sparingly (no more than 10% of the paper). Be sure topic is sufficiently limited. All words should be spelled correctly and errors in sentence structure eliminated. The level of diction should be formal (no slang, contractions, jargon, or technical terms without definition). The paper should be well written and scholarly. All borrowed information must be noted whether quoted or paraphrased.
