The student will prepare a 4 – 6 page research paper (APA format) detailing a medical condition which has been selected from the below “approved topics” list. You do not need to email me with your choice of topic. Four-to-six pages are to be of content, not including the cover and References pages. You may not reuse the same research paper you have already used in another class/section.
Turnitin plagiarism check will be used. A red flag result will not be accepted. You may resubmit as many times as you wish before the due date. Make use of Brookdale’s Bankier Library research librarians, writing tutors, and the Writing Center, to help you with your paper.
Students submitting papers must use a Word document with the file suffix as PDF, .doc or docx. If you are using a MAC, you must convert your paper to a PDF before submitting it. Papers submitted in any other format will earn a grade of zero. Papers are not accepted via email, Canvas message, or via a cloud service (One Drive, Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.)
