This is a three part assignment. Can you complete the first assignment by 11 October? The second is by
17 October and the final by 22 October. Please advise on what is needed. Thank you.
Part 1 of the Research Paper includes both an overview of the research project and an Annotated
Bibliography. In the overview section, students must identify the criminological theory that will serve as the
basis for their research project and briefly describe how that theory explains why individuals decide to
commit crimes. The overview section should be no more than two pages in length.
The Annotated Bibliography must include a minimum of six scholarly resources that the student plans to
utilize in the Research Paper. Each resource must be formatted per APA (6 th ed.) guidelines, include a
brief description of the information included in the resource, and why it is relevant to the research paper.
Students will be allowed to utilize more scholarly resources in the Final Research Paper as appropriate.
The intent of the Annotated Bibliography is to demonstrate that the student is headed in the right direction
with his or her research for the paper. Part 1 of the Research Paper should be approximately four-five
pages in length (a two page overview and two-three page Annotated Bibliography), not counting the cover
and reference pages. Please review the general guidelines for papers to obtain a description of other
formatting requirements Information about accessing the Blackboard Grading Rubric for this assignment
is provided below.
Part 2 of the Research Paper includes the section focused upon the selected criminological theory. In this
section, students will (1) discuss the foundations and principles of the theory, (2) compare and contrast
the theory to at least two other criminological theories, and (3) discuss why this theory was selected to
explain why an individual decides to commit crime as well as how the theory assists criminal justice
professionals in understanding criminal activity. Please note that students are only explaining why the
theory was selected in the last part of this section. A full discussion on the topics highlighted in item three
(3) above shows what will be included in the final paper. In addition to the textbook, students must
incorporate at least four additional scholarly resources as part of their discussion about the selected
criminological theory. Part 2 of the Research Paper should be five-seven pages in length, not counting the
cover and reference pages.
The Final Research Paper will consist of the following components: (1) overview section submitted during
unit iii; (2) criminological theory section submitted during unit v; and (3) evaluation of how the selected
theory impacts an individual’s decision to commit crime and how it assists criminal justice professionals in
understanding criminal activity. Information presented in each section should be supported with scholarly
resources. Sections of the Final Research Paper that were previously submitted in Units III and V must
include any updates that were recommended by the course instructor through his or her feedback. The
final section of the paper (Section 3: Evaluation) will be created and submitted with the final draft.
While the level of detail in each section of the Research Paper will vary, it is anticipated that Section 3 will
be approximately three-five pages in length. This should result in a Final Research Paper (Parts 1, 2, and
3) that is 10–14 pages in length, not counting the cover and reference pages. Please review the general
guidelines for papers to obtain a description of other formatting requirements.
