Full Paper

Due Tuesday February 28th by 5pm

Post on CourseWorks in the Full Papers folder.

The full paper should be approximately 15 pages on the topic described in your Paper Outline.

Each paper should have a title, an author (with contact information), a brief abstract (about 100 words), an introductory section, some number of body sections (3-5 is typical), a concluding section, and a bibliographic list of references that are cited in the paper.

Do not simply survey some topic.  Instead compare this to that, argue a position in favor or against something, evaluate something according to some meaningful criteria, etc.  Pretend your reader will be another member of the class, who has heard all the same lectures you have/will, but may not know anything at all about the specifics of your particular topic.

Passages (including illustrations, tables, definitions, etc.) taken directly from other writings much be quoted and cited. Passages that are paraphrases or summaries of other writings must be cited.  To do otherwise will be construed as plagiarism and treated accordingly.

All documents must be submitted in pdf, word, html or plain ascii text, with all figures embedded or viewable in an ordinary browser without special “plugins”.   It is your responsibility to ensure all submissions are “safe” prior to submission; any submissions that make a virus or malware checker unhappy will not be read or graded.

All document files are to be named using this schema: Assignment_Author.  For example, the submitted file containing a student’s full paper should have a file name like Full_Paper_Jane_Doe.pdf.  10% credit will be subtracted when the document file name does not include both the assignment name and the student’s full name (not the uni).  Full_Paper_jd2009.pdf is not acceptable.  6125_Jane_Doe.pdf is not acceptable.
