For your paper, you are to use a minimum of 5 academic references relevant to your chosen topic. You may use Internet resources, books, journals, or any other materials you feel relevant to your topic. No matter what sources you use, academic articles are always preferred to non-academic articles. It is also important that you avoid using inappropriate materials such as any politically motivated articles. When using Internet resources, you must be extra careful as it provides both information and disinformation. It is required to use the ASA (American Sociological Association) style.
3. The minimum length of your paper is about 1,500 words including your reference list. Longer papers are welcome, but shorter papers are not. However, bear in mind that longer papers are not necessarily superior to shorter ones. What I am looking for is its quality, not quantity.
4. The content of your paper must be well organized and you must provide a thorough and comprehensive analysis of your chosen topic. My suggestion? Always think before you write.
