References Page and Sentence Outline

Reference Page:

1. Submit your references (minimum of 7) in a Word document.

2. Note that most websites, blogs, and sites like Wikipedia are not considered valid scholarly peer reviewed references. We are looking for journal articles. In your paper, be sure to cite everything you get from another source (i.e. direct quotations, charts, pictures, or summaries of someone else’s ideas). Also, be sure to include all of the materials that you have consulted in writing your paper, even if you did not cite them in the body of your paper. The Bible and course textbook can count as additional references. In addition to the latter references, you need to meet the outlined minimum for scholarly references. When in doubt, go above and beyond as minimums will not necessarily equate to quality and high evaluation marks.

3. Use current APA format in the construction of your entire paper including margins, spacing, and your references page.

Sentence Outline:

1. In the same Word document, but on separate pages, include an outline of your research paper. Include as much detail as possible without writing complete paragraphs. (This will help you as you construct your final version.)

2. A cover sheet is required (current APA format). The outline format will be as follows:

1. item 1

1.1. sub-item

1.1.1. sub-item

2. item 2

3. etc.

This is a research paper broken down into parts. The first part was the topic. This is the second part of the research paper (References Page and Sentence Outline). And the final part of the search paper will be the actual research paper.

The topic of this research paper is Database Security. You can find the Topic document in the attachment for references. Also a References Page and Sentence Outline that I turned in last year is attached. Use this to go by. Also, check the professors comments to be sure to not repeat same mistakes as last person that did this assignment!
