Each research paper should be a minimum of 8 to 12 pages. The vast difference in page count is due to the fact that some countries are quite easy to study and some countries have very limited information. In some instances there will be a plethora of information and you must use skilled writing to maintain proper page count. Please keep in mind that this is doctoral level analysis and writing – you are to take the hard-earned road – the road less travelled – the scholarly road in forming your paper.
The paper must use current APA style, and the page count does not include the title page, abstract, reference section, or any extra material. The minimum elements of the paper are listed above.
You must use the following sources:
· At least 8 recent, peer reviewed sources: some countries may have more recent research articles than others
· 2 verses/citations from the Holy Bible
· 1 newspaper article
· Books may be used but are considered “additional: sources beyond the stated minimums.
· You may use .gov sources as your recent, relevant, and academic sources as long as the writing is academic in nature (authored works).
Again, this paper must reflect graduate level research and writing style. If you need to go over the maximum page count you must obtain professor permission in advance! Please reference the Research Paper Rubric when creating your research paper
