Research Paper Using Word This assignment has two goals: 1) have students increase their understanding of ethical issues related to the use of information technology through research, and 2) learn to correctly use the tools and techniques within Word to format a research paper, including use of available References and citation tools. These skills will be valuable throughout a student’s academic career. The paper will require a title page, NO abstract, three to five full pages of content with incorporation of a minimum of 3 external resources from credible sources and a Works Cited/References page. Wikipedia and similar general information sites, blogs or discussion groups are not considered creditable sources for a research project. No more than 10% of the paper may be in the form of a direct citation from an external source. A list of topics from which students can choose is provided below. Topics for Research Paper Explore ethical issues that may surround the use of information technology in the implementation or development of one of these topics 1. Genetic Engineering – crops and humans 2. Biometrics – various implementations and the ethical and privacy issues related to the use of biometrics 3. Development of artificial intelligence and intelligent agents (such as Siri, Cortana, and so on) 4. Development of robots as intelligent as humans; smart machines and the IOT. 5. Genome-based treatments for curing diseases 6. Family, eldercare, and parenting issues with technology and information systems 7. The pros and cons of using computer-assisted education in the elementary school classroom 8. Issues facing the IT Manager or Security professional (e.g., privacy, ownership, control, accuracy, security) 9. Ethical issues in defense information systems in this era of Edward Snowden, Chelsea Manning, Wikileaks, etc. If there is another topic that addresses ethical issues as related to information technology that is of special interest to you but one that is not in the list above, request permission from your instructor before selecting this alternate topic. Writing Quality for the Research Paper * All Grammar, Verb Tenses, Pronouns, Spelling, Punctuation, and Writing Competency should be without error. * Be particularly careful about mis-matching a noun and pronoun. For example, if you say "A person does this…" then do not use "their" or "they" when referring to that person. "Person" is singular; "their" or "they" is plural. * Remember: there is not their, your is not you're, its is not it's, too is not to or two, site is not cite, and who should be used after an individual, not that. For example, "the person WHO made the speech" not "the person THAT made the speech." * In a professional paper one does not use contractions (doesn't, don't, etc.) and one does not use the personal I, you or your. Use the impersonal as in the previous sentence. It is more business-like to say "In a professional paper one should not use contractions," rather than saying, "In a professional paper you don't use contractions." *Remember: spell-check, then proofread. Better yet, have a friend or colleague read it before submitting it. Read it out loud to yourself. Read it as if you are submitting it to your boss. You can find instructions on how to use the References tool in Word on a PC or on a Mac in the separate file attached here. Complete rubrics for this paper are found in the table on the next page.

APA Requirements for This Class Much of the information below comes from the APA Tutorial, available through the Effective Writing Center, under the Resources tab above. For this class, the main focus of APA formatting is on citations and references, and papers with incorrect citations and/or references will lose points on the grade. APA format is more than simply using in-text citations and full references. Writers apply APA format to their work for the following reasons: Providing in-text citations and full references tells readers what sources were used to write an article or book. Using APA format ensures consistency in the conventions writers use and readers expect in publications. Including in-text citations and full references credits writers in their field for the research they have conducted. Using APA format protects writers from being plagiarized and from plagiarizing others. The reference list gives the reader the information necessary to locate and retrieve any source you cite in your paper. Full references are always listed on a separate page at the end of a paper and match one-to-one with a citation that appears in a paper. Every source you cite in the paper must appear in your reference list; and, every entry in the reference list must be cited in your text. If you review other sources, but do not cite them, they are not included in the reference list. The reference page is labeled as: References and is centered and bolded and always plural. Each reference appears in alphabetical order by the first word, and no numbering is used. Each entry is single spaced, with the first line at the margin and the second and subsequent lines indented one-half inch. Use double spacing between entries. For full examples of how to create correct APA citations and reference lists, go to: http://sites.umuc.edu/library/libhow/apa_examples.cfm Another excellent, concise guide to APA citations and references list can be found here: http://www.lib.sfu.ca/help/cite-write/citation-style-guides/apa A note about the References tool in Word On a PC/Windows system (based on Office 2010) When you need to create a citation (giving credit for work that you are referencing), you click on References, then on Insert Citation. The next step is to add a new source. When you get to the "Create Source" window, it is suggested that you click on the "Show All Bibliography Fields." Here is a sample Source screen. Once you have entered all the source information, click on Bibliography and then Insert Bibliography. This is the citation: (Joseph, 2000) This is how the source is entered into the References list: Joseph, J. (2000, October). Ethics in the Workplace.

Add a source by using the Source Manager The Source Manager lists every source ever entered on your computer so that you can reuse them in any other document.
