Per template, the following information should be included within the paper (see above template): Your Full Name E-mail address(es) Institutional or company affiliation(s) Paper title Paper abstract Paper keywords The paper should be about 5 to 10 pages long, single-spaced, APA-style citations and references. [Alternatively, you may follow 7th Edition of the Chicago Manual of Style, as indicated in the template. That’s my personal favorite.] Paper should not exceed twenty (20) pages, including all appendices. However, most papers are five (5) to ten (10) pages, using the font and margin settings specified in the template. All pages are to be U.S. letter-size (8.5″ x 11″). Do not alter the given margin and font settings on the template. Any tables or figures that exceed the given width of the columns should be included in an appendix. Appendices may be formatted in any way you deem necessary, with the exception that all pages must adhere to the standard page margins on an 8.5″ x 11″ page template. Any rotated pages in landscape orientation in the appendices should be rotated ninety (90) degrees to the left (commonly referred to as “counter-clockwise” or “anti-clockwise” rotation). References should be listed alphabetically at the end of the paper according to APA style or the 7th Edition of the Chicago Manual of Style. Parentheses should be used within the body of the paper to offset citations. [Clarification: Parentheses should be used within the body of the paper to offset citations. Articles must cite a minimum of five scholarly (peer-reviewed) sources but 10 or 15 references are recommended. These must be cited in-text (parenthetical citation) and be accompanied by a full citation in the reference list. In general, we consider a source to be scholarly if it is published in an edited book, a peer reviewed publication, an academic journal, or by a university press. Citing multiple works by the same author(s) or web-links (URLs) only qualifies as meeting one of the required five.] Paper should be submitted (uploaded) as one single file. The file must be in Microsoft Word .DOC, or Microsoft Word .DOCX. Limit figures to either JPG or GIF format for this purpose when embedding the image within the document’s pages. Like text, all figures or table or graph should be original (i.e., created by you). CLARIFICATION: As a reminder, please note that the above referenced PEAS Framework for Critical Thinking (see questions below) requires you to address the research questions you are trying to answer/address in your paper as well as providing the supporting evidence, analysis and proposed solutions. Problem Define the problem to be solved. What question(s) do you have to answer? Be careful! It is not always obvious what is the real problem and what is merely a symptom of the problem. Evidence Identify relevant facts and data. Ask yourself: How do I know these are facts rather than opinions, inferences or assumptions? From what perspective am I viewing the evidence? Are there other perspectives from which to view the evidence? What additional information do I need? Analysis Generate and evaluate three or four alternative solutions to the problem in light of the evidence and relevant rules, theories, models, concepts, techniques, perspectives or guidelines. Ask yourself: Does each alternative really address the problem to be solved? How well does the evidence support each alternative? Do I need to find more or different evidence or data to help me generate and/or assess alternatives? What are the strengths and weaknesses of each alternative? What assumptions and inferences am I making? Are these justified? What are the practical implications of each alternative? What criteria will I use to determine which is the optimal alternative? Solution Choose the optimal solution. Test your solution to make sure it addresses the problem, is based on good evidence, does not ignore relevant facts and data, and meets your decision-making criteria. Explain why your solution is better than the alternatives.
