Gender & Crime Research Paper Guidelines
Your research paper should be at least 6-7 pages and may not exceed 10 pages (including bibliography and cover page).
This should be a 1-3 paragraph statement of the topic and the theoretical perspectives you will be discussing.
Statement of Facts Relating to Topic
This section should be 1-3 pages and include statistics with citations in either MLA or APA format.
Application of Theories to Explain Topic/Problem
This section should be 2-4 pages and should include detailed discussion of how at least 2 different theories we covered in class (from the material in the first segment of the course) can be used to explain your topic. The discussion of theories should include references to sources. Sources should include but need not be limited to the ones we read for class; the best papers will include reference to relevant sources in addition to the ones assigned for class reading.
This section should include a discussion of how any “problem” associated with your topic might be resolved in light of the theories you used to explain the topic. The conclusion should be 1-3 pages. Papers may include citations to readings assigned for class as well as other sources.
Use either MLA or APA format for the bibliography but be consistent: for example, if you used MLA for in-text citations, use MLA for the bibliography.
