A topic paper is essentially a miniature review paper. Based on your primary sources, you will summarize and synthesize our current understanding of the topic you have selected.

Organization & Content

  • Your goal is to synthesize the information presented in each source into a single coherent discussion of the general topic.
  • Try not to get too bogged down in the details of any single source. Look for the "big picture" ideas.
  • The body of your topic paper should compare and contrast the primary sources you cite, as they relate to your topic.
  • DO NOT simply summarize each source one by one. Instead, discuss how the biological concepts are connected.Paper Format
  • Your paper must be submitted as a MS Word document (.docx).
  • Your paper must be typed with 12-pt font and double-spaced with 1" margins.
  • There are no strict page number requirements, but a good ballpark is around 4–6 pages(excluding the Lit. Cited).
  • DO NOT include a title page. Simply include your name at the top of the first page.
  • Carefully proofread your paper to avoid spelling and grammatical errors. Better yet —ask someone else to proofread your paper before you submit it.
  • Always view your submission after you upload it to Blackboard to make sure everythingis OK.In-text Citations
  • Since the paper is intended to review scientific research articles, you should cite one or more of your sources for nearly everything you write.
  • Place in-text citations at the end of the first sentence containing information from a source, but before the period. When in doubt, include a citation.
  • DO NOT directly quote from any of your sources.
  • Use your own words and cite the source. Failing to do so is plagiarism and will result in afailing grade for the paper (and possibly the course).
  • Identify the author(s) and year within parentheses. DO NOT include first names orinitials; only last names.
  • If there are three or more authors, list the last name of the first author followed by "et al.",meaning "and others."
  • If you are citing multiple sources within the same sentence, list the sourceschronologically (oldest to most recent) separated with a semicolon.
