Writing the Research Paper

Writing the research paper is simply a matter of adding flesh to the  bones created by the outline. Many writers get stuck by starting at the  top and attempting to write the introduction first. Yet, the  introduction addresses what is in the body, so it is wiser to create the  body of the paper first by fleshing out the background and the  supporting data sections.  It is not unusual to build the sections with  sentence fragments of data as you organize your information. you can  then go back and work them into complete sentences and paragraphs. Once  they are complete, write the introduction and conclusion last. 

The paper will be evaluated according to the following criteria:

Structure

  • The paper must include all sections specified in the paragraph chart in the assignment description.
  • Use subheadings to organize each section of the paper to ensure they are there.

Content

  • The paper must be a research-based analysis of a phenomena related to African Humanities. 
  • The paper must have a thesis statement. Put it in bold or italics so it is obvious and easy to find.
  • The data in the body of the paper must support the thesis statement in the introduction.
  • The paper must use terms & concepts  presented in the course. These are words and phrases in bold and  italics throughout the web lessons. Use bold or italics to make them  stand out in your paper. For example, if your paper is addressing the  how a food with African origins, such as coffee, has influenced  beverages throughout the world, you should use terms and concepts from  the Globalization & Diaspora lesson. 

Writing Style

  • The paper should use declarative sentences; avoid ‘I think,’ slang, tangents
  • Do not editorialize; this is not an essay. 
  • The  paper should not promote stereotypes, misinformation or generalizations  about African people. If you are going to address topics such as  violence, oppression, etc., it is important to situate the phenomena in  its social and historical contexts. 
  • Use transition sentences to connect your paragraphs. 
  • Write authoritatively. You have done scholarly research on this topic, so write like an expert. 
  • READ THE PAPER ALOUD. It should sound as though you are addressing a large audience. 

Spelling and Grammar

  • Always conduct a spellcheck before submitting a paper.
  • Read aloud to check for grammatical errors.
  • Use an online grammar check such as www.grammarly.com for assistance.

Referencing 

  • There must be at least five scholarly references in the bibliography.
  • There must be in-text referencing within the body of the paper.  
  • The bibliography must be properly formatted using any citation style.
  • Failure to include references and in-text citations will result in an automatic ‘0’.

  • minimum five pages (2,500 words) double-spaced (it is OK to go over)
  • Times New Roman, 12 point font
  • one-inch margins 
  • no extra spaces between paragraphs
