When selecting the topic, it is important to make sure that you will be able to find a sufficient amount of empirical research to address each Areas of Focus listed above. Paper needs to be organized using the Areas of Focus as section headings so the information can be easily identified.To “Meet Expectations” the Research Paper needs to be a minimum of 10 pages of text—title, abstract and reference pages are in addition to the 10 pages.In order to “Exceed Expectations” the Research Paper needs to be 12+ pages of text—title, abstract and reference pages are in addition to the 12+ pages.To “Meet Expectations” the Research Paper needs to have a minimum of 10 references from full-text empirical research journals.In order to “Exceed Expectations” the Research Paper needs to have 12+ references from full-text empirical research journals.Research Paper needs to follow the Areas of Focus described at the end of this section. Each Area of Focus needs to be supported by information from full-text empirical research journals. To \”Meet Expectations\” each Area of Focus needs to have 1 empirical research reference from full-text empirical research journals. Note: Areas of Focus #4 and #5 need at least two empirical research sources to meet expectations.To \”Exceed Expectations\” each Area of Focus needs to have 2 or more empirical references from full-text empirical research journals.The Research Paper must follow the APA format—title page, abstract, reference page, 1 inch margins, running heads, DS, proper reference format, etc. See the following website for more information: http://www.psychbytes.com/APA.htm(Links to an external site.)

JSTOR does not provide current articles and many are not from empirical research journals–it is not recommended that you use this database.Paper needs to be the required length to meet the minimum requirement.10 pages of text—12+ pages are needed to receive the full points possible in that particular section of the grading rubric.Paper needs to have the required number of empirical references to meet the minimum requirement.At least 1 empirical reference is needed for each Area of Focus; at least 2 different empirical references are needed to receive full points in each Area of Focus. Note: Areas of Focus #4 and #5 need at least two empirical research sources to ���meet expectations” and four empirical research sources to “exceed expectations”.The expected Areas of Focus need to be followedAreas listed aboveThe textbook we are using or any other textbook cannot be used.Information from Wikipedia or SparkNotes (or similar sources of information) cannot be used.Websites are not to be used for the research paper.Websites are not empirical research journals and are not to be used.All references cited on Reference Page need to be used and documented in body of paper.APA requirement: Papers need to be focused, developed, organized and proofread.
