The term paper for this course requires that you identify a topic/issue you are interested in that relates to white-collar crime and research the issue in academic journals, books, and non-scholarly articles. In the paper you will need to: (1) define the issue, (2) review the research on the issue, and (3) describe how the issue impacts the nation/the world –and people.
These topics are just a few samples offered as examples to you. Actual topics should be more tightly focused. Please use the NJCU Library online database (I like to use Academic Search Premier – Ebsco Host). It is expected that at least five (5) works (not assigned course readings) from scholarly journals, books, or non-scholarly articles in the field will be used (three (3) is the minimum). Your research should exclude the course textbook, other textbooks on criminal justice, encyclopedias, and non-academic websites. Choose whatever page-length you feel is appropriate to earn a good grade to show some work. Your choice!
Please cite all of the sources that you use when writing the paper. A citation is necessary for any information that you paraphrase or directly quote. If you do not have direct personal knowledge of the information that you use in the paper, then a citation is required. Please be sure to cite your sources in the body of the paper and list them in your references. Please use the APA format for citations and references and documentation style.
The paper is due April 28.
