CSCI 415 TERM PAPER TOPICS SELECTION – Fall 2019 Due Monday, September 16, 2019 (11:59pm)
Please select your top three ethics topics (in order of preference) from the list below and email your choices to GA Cheung Yau Ka [email protected] or post on discussion board by Monday, September 16, 2019. I will compile a list by name of your selected topics to reduce the number of duplicate topic areas. You will only be assigned one topic but I want your top three to make putting together the list easier. If there is another topic that you think would fit into the class that you are interested in, go ahead and submit that too. I’m interested in expanding this list.
Required topic headings for your paper should include the background surrounding the issue, a historical perspective, current issues that are applicable, legislation dealing with this topic, examples, global dynamics/impact (such as issues, processes, trends, and systems), personal impact from a global perspective, and a summary. These are the topics to be discussed in the term paper
Each paper should contain a reference list of at least five (5) different substantial and quality references. The references and reference citations for the term paper must be to a current event less than 3 years old (a reference with no date (n.d.) is not acceptable). This requires a reference citation in the text of the paper and a reference at the end of the paper to which the reference citation applies. You must include some information obtained from the reference in your answer. The references must be found on the internet and you must include a URL in your reference so that the reference can be verified.
You cannot use information from the text book or any book/article by the author of the text book as a current event. Make sure that your reference has a date of publication.
The body of the paper should be a minimum of six typed double spaced pages. Your cover page and reference page cannot be counted in this number. You should use the APA format for your reference citations and the reference page.
This course has been designated as a global course which includes the requirement that you must place this term paper in your ePortfolio in Mane Sync. A screen shot must be attached to your term paper that you submit for grading to prove that the paper was placed in your ePortfolio. Directions for using the ePortfolio and be found at the following URL:
