By now, you are well on your way toward the development of the research paper. Please review the paper resources from the past six modules. Remember, writing a research paper can be completed with this perfect formula.
Checklist
Introduction – Tells the reader what you are going to write about and includes your thesis statement. Be sure to make it interesting so the reader will want to continue and read the rest of your work.
Body of the Paper – Goes through each point you want to illustrate by providing your ideas and your research on the topic. Be sure you write an opening sentence for each paragraph that will draw your reader into your idea or point.
Conclusion/Summary – Reminds the reader what you wrote about in your work. Basically, it is the introduction with a concluding statement.
Your paper will automatically be evaluated through Turnitin when you submit your assignment in this activity. Turnitin is a service that checks your work for improper citation or potential plagiarism by comparing it against a database of web pages, student papers, and articles from academic books and publications. Ensure that your work is entirely your own and that you have not plagiarized any material! Additionally, refer to the Academic Resources page in this course for information about the Turnitin Draft Coach service.
Topic – Choose an economic-related topic that interests you most; do not move forward until you receive instructor approval for your topic. Examine your topic from any perspective or lens that interests you: historical, scientific, technological, engineering, or mathematical.
Sources – Support your research topic and the perspective or lens (historical, scientific, technological, engineering, or mathematical) through credible sources in your reference page. You must include at least six credible sources. Try to find sources that truly interest you. Sources must contain credible information, data, facts, etc., on your subject. You may use encyclopedias to aid in the discovery of your topic; however, encyclopedias will not be considered an approved source of information in the development of your paper. When conducting research, keep in mind that primary sources are first-person accounts, and secondary sources are written by people who did not witness/participate in the event. An excellent place to begin research is through the Hunt Library databases and research guides. Note: Investopedia and Wikipedia do not count as credible resources!
Research Question, Thesis Statement, and Paper – You will develop a six- to eight-page (current APA Style) research paper. Develop your topic into one clear concise research question and create a thesis statement. Compile your (one) question, thesis statement, and research into a written four- to six-page written paper. You must also include a title page and reference page in the six- to eight- pages of your research paper. You can write from any perspective or lens that interests you: historical, scientific, technological, engineering, or mathematical. This research paper must include the following elements:

Body (four to six pages)Introduction – Informs the reader what you are going to write about and includes your thesis statement. Be sure to make it interesting so the reader will want to continue and read the rest of your work.
