It is now time to pull together your previous work into a draft paper. You may need to rearrange paragraphs to make the research project paper flow smoothly as you transition from the various components. This submission should be no less than 10 pages in length. In addition to the components from the previous units, you will need to identify your solution and describe what should be done and how it should be done. Provide a timeline, if needed, of who is responsible for completing general tasks, and include any other recommendations you might have to improving the situation about which you are writing.
All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced according to APA style; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations. Be sure to choose your references judiciously.
Note: Citing an author’s work within your text documents your research, identifies the source for readers, and enables readers to locate the source of information in the alphabetical reference list at the end of the paper. To use the ideas or words of another person without crediting the source is plagiarism. Plagiarism in its purest form involves copying passages either verbatim or nearly verbatim, with no direct acknowledgment of the source. The most common form of plagiarism is to paraphrase information from your source material without citing it properly. Paraphrasing does not relieve you of the obligation to provide proper identification of source data. The best way to avoid plagiarism is to make sure all quotes, ideas, or conclusions not your own are given proper acknowledgment in your text.
