Drugs and Behavior Research
Guidelines for Writing the
Papers are to be typed and
double-spaced. The paper is expected to be well written; well
organized and demonstrates substantial research. The paper is
to be typed on regular white stock paper with black ink.
Handwritten papers will not be accepted.
In addition to the typed
report, an emailed final copy is required as well. The paper
should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please
insure that the emailed copy is the final draft
as I will be using the emailed copy as part of the overall
grade for the paper.
The nature of this
research paper indicates that a minimum of 500
words should meet the standard for a satisfactory grade provided
that the paper is well written with documented research.
The cover sheet should
contain the title of the paper and your name.
Simply staple the paper, in the top left corner; do not
submit in any type of folder, plastic sleeve, etc. There are no
pictures; drawings; or other artwork to appear on the cover.
You are encouraged to include pictures and drawings within the
body of your paper.
As the research paper
reflects research, more than one source must be
used in the paper’s development. Any source may be used in the
preparation of the paper – books; scientific journal articles;
internet; etc. Each source must be listed on a page titled
“Reference List” which is placed at the end of the research
paper, and is alphabetized according to author. Refer to format
notes below. A minimum of three (3) resources must be
used with at least one (1) of these sources an internet website.
All of your resources may come from the internet. I encourage
you to use only the internet for your research as you will find
the most up-to-date information online.
